Michigantown is a town in Michigan Township, Clinton County, Indiana, United States. The population was 406 at the 2000 census. The town was named for the Michigan Road, an early thoroughfare through the area.[3]



Joseph Hill and Robert Edwards platted Michigantown in 1830 with lots on both sides of the Michigan Road; additions made in 1874 and 1876 by William Lowden added more lots to the north, bringing the edge of town up to what was then the Frankfort and Kokomo Railroad (later the Toledo, St. Louis and Western). In 1912 the Marion, Kokomo and Frankfort Electric Railroad built a line that paralleled the other through town.

Michigantown was incorporated in the early 1870s. The northern part of town was sometimes referred to as Lowdenville.[4]
