History

Founded in 1819, the village is named after the city of Versailles in France. Versailles was originally named Jacksonville. However, as a large majority of early residents were of French descent, it was suggested that the village's name be changed to "Versailles" in memory of their homeland. Versailles became the new name of the village in 1837.
