AboutWho we are
Whitestown, Indiana, was named in honor of Albert S. White. White was the president of the railroad that was built through Whitestown, a United States Senator, and a leader in the movement to abolish slavery in the United States.
Today, the Big Four Trail celebrates our rich past while repurposing that former historic rail line into a walking and biking path for our residents.
The trail has an important link to American history, as both the Lincoln Inaugural Train and the Lincoln Funeral Train traveled that exact route through Whitestown in 1861 and 1865.
From our humble beginnings, Whitestown has boomed into a flourishing community that has been the fastest-growing community in Indiana for nearly a decade. Today, more than 10,000 people call Whitestown home. Whitestown was also recently ranked one of the top 25 most popular small towns to live in the U.S.
