About the Bicentennial

Indiana Borough was incorporated on March 11, 1816.  As we approach the Bicentennial of our home and as we reflect upon the welcoming and enterprising spirit of our community, we believe that it is most fitting that we celebrate Indiana’s past two hundred years and at the same time look forward to a bright future guided and energized by the remarkable character that has distinguished our home and our people from the beginning.
