Blackford County

Blackford County, located in East Central Indiana is comprised of two primary cities. Hartford City, the county seat, and Montpelier, its nearby neighbor, were products of the growth experienced during the discovery of natural gas and oil. Since 1930, the population of the area has grown at a moderate rate with a good balance in manufacturing and agricultural production. The people of our communities live and work here because they enjoy the convenience of our services and the camaraderie of our small-town atmosphere. They also enjoy the benefit of easy access to the amenities of the nearby metropolitan areas. These features combine to offer our residential and business communities the foundation and threshold for opening the doorways for community and economic development opportunity
