Historical Roots

Zionsville owes its name to William Zion, a businessman from Lebanon, Indiana, who played a pivotal role in the city’s establishment despite never having lived here. Tasked with finding a new station for The Lafayette and Indianapolis Railroad, Zion proposed creating a town on the land of Elijah and Mary Cross, eventually co-founding Zionsville on January 26th, 1852. Initially dubbed “Zion’s Village,” the city’s name was a nod to its co-founder, William Zion.

Our city takes pride in offering an abundance of parklands, with over 500 acres of green space, 20 miles of trails, and upwards of 20 parks providing everything from playgrounds to golf courses.
