Anderson Jewelers

In celebration of 175 years of the county, the Genealogical Society looks back at:
CHRISTIAN COUNTY — This township was one of the four original precincts formed from the organization of Christian County.  It was much larger then, at one time around 195 square miles but now is only 36 square miles.   In the early years it was mainly prairie.  Many wagons passed through this township going towards Mt. Auburn.  They camped at night in the tall wild grass that grew so luxuriantly in this low land of the vast prairie. The annual prairie fires were a great problem to the early settlers.
