Stretched across 40.8 square miles on a bend of the Ohio River, Evansville is the third largest city in the State of Indiana. The city was originally settled back in 1812 although the first cabin in the city was built in 1809. At first French explorers set foot in the city and named the city La Belle Riviere which means The Beautiful River in English. The city was named after one of the founders of the city, Robert Morgan Evans, after it was laid out back in 1817. City was incorporated back in 1819 while the city charter came to the city in 1847.

With the further addition of Evansville & Crawfordsville Railroad, the city kept on attracting huge flocks of immigrants and soon, Evansville was ranked 56th largest city due to its population, however this rank was lost during 1900s as the population suffered a major decline, partly due to the Ohio River flood as that hit the city in 1937.
