History

Warrick County was formed out of Gibson County on April 30, 1813, just 30 days after Gibson County was formed out of Knox County. The Boundary between the two newly created counties was known as Rector's Base Line, from the Wabash River near New Harmony in the west to the Ohio River near Alton in the east.[3] Crawford, Perry, Posey, Spencer, and Vanderburgh counties were all formed from Warrick County.[4]
