4 About Clay County Origins of Clay County

At the Indiana legislative of 1825, nine years after the admission of the state to the union, Clay County was organized from sections of surrounding counties and named for Kentucky statesman, Henry Clay. The county’s earliest settlement, Bowling Green, preceded its formation by almost a decade. David Thomas came to the area in 1818 and was followed soon after by Samuel Rizley. The majority of Clay County’s settlement activity centered along the Eel River, which flows through the central part of the county. It was near this river that the community of Bowling Green was established. Bowling Green was named the county seat following Clay County’s organization since it was the only community in the county founded before 1830.

The tale of the courthouses

Built in the newly platted town of Bowling Green, the first county courthouse was constructed in 1828 soon after the Indiana legislature formed Clay County. The county quickly outgrew the two-story structure of hand-hewn logs and built a new two-story brick building at the same location. However, a fire on November 30, 1851, destroyed the building and all the records as well as ignited a public debate over selecting a new location for the county seat. Although some citizens believed Bowling Green was no longer the most practical or logical site for a new courthouse, the commissioners quickly decided to build the third courthouse on the site of the previous one. Built of brick, at the cost of $11,000, and very similar to the former courthouse, the new Courthouse began serving the county in the Fall of 1853. By the 1860s, the construction of the National Road (the old Cumberland Road and currently U.S. 40), as well as the addition of various railroads, the cities of Knightsville, Harmony, and Brazil, were fast becoming far more important and prosperous towns. Stronger and more organized efforts to relocate the county seat to Brazil began

Times File Photo in 1871, when brothers Robert and John Stewart donated a tract of land along the National Road in Brazil for the proposed site of the new courthouse. The sum of $5,300 was also raised by citizens in the area to entice the commissioners to move the seat of government from Bowling Green to Brazil. This amount was reportedly the value of the existing courthouse and grounds, thus defusing opponents’ argument that abandoning the present courthouse would be a waste of taxpayers’ money. The relocation efforts, which began in earnest in 1871, were ultimately challenged in the Supreme Court. The relocation was finally granted in 1876. The Clay County Courthouse, constructed in 1913-1914, is one of the most historically and architecturally significant buildings in Brazil and Clay County, Indiana. Built in Classical Revival style of architecture, it is the only building in Clay County holding county government offices and records. It is located alongside the famed National Road (Cumberland Trail). The present Courthouse is the fifth Courthouse to serve the people of Clay County, In 1986, a grassroots restoration effort was introduced by Clay Circuit Judge Ernest Yelton with a primary purpose to restore the beautiful stained glass dome to its original beauty. Embraced by the Clay Civic Memorial Foundation, a fundraising project entitled “CODFISH”

(Clay Officials Dedicated For Improving Stained Glass Heritage) was undertaken and successfully raised $30,000.00. The project was awarded to Kiser Glass of Indianapolis. During the restoration project, workmen discovered that wooden panels had been placed in circular openings in the four sides of the dome where clocks could be installed. A second fund-raiser was immediately initiated by Clay Civic Memorial Foundation, and the funds were raised quickly, all by Memorial gifts. Four lighted clocks were installed by the Omega Clock Company of Indianapolis at the cost of $18,500, electrified by Scott Electrical Services of Brazil, and were in operation by November 26, 1986.

Saving the Sabre

The renovation project for the F-86F (52-5434) Sabre warplane memorial on the Courthouse lawn (above) was expected to start in 2020, but has been delayed to 2021 due to COVID-19. The jet fighter-interceptor is one of only maybe a 100 planes still in existence and is on loan to the City of Brazil from the Wright Patterson Air Force Base and Museum in Dayton, Ohio. Anyone interested in learning more about this project or volunteering to help, call the Mayor’s Office at Brazil

We like cool cars Clay County residents love their old cars, and they’re ones that go fast and make a lot of noise. Not surprisingly, there are several occasions when these cars are on display and can be viewed by onlookers. The Cory Apple Festival in September has a special car show, with many older vehicles on display. Twice a year, “Cruising Brazil” takes place on U.S. 40 through Brazil. Residents line the streets and watch an impressive array of cars go up and down the street.

R.E.I.N. CENTER COMMUNITY LIBRARY 700 Main St., Clay City, IN 47841 CLAY COUNTY GENEALOGY LIBRARY (GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY, INC.) 309 E. Main St. PO Box 56, Center Point, IN 47840 812-835-5005 Clay County Genealogical Library is located on the corner of Gilbert and Main streets in Center Point. The Clay County Genealogical Society, Inc. started the library with a small collection in the spare room of Helen Tarvin’s home. When the collection out-grew the room, the society started looking for a larger place. With the help of Ben Coffman, the present building was purchased, and the first meeting was held in it in November 1985. The library houses over 1,600 books including over 300 family histories, 6,000 surname files, historical newspapers on microfilm, files on towns, schools, businesses, and much more. While the emphasis is on Clay County materials, there is a considerable collection of materials that pertain to other Indiana counties as well as states from which Hoosiers have immigrated and emigrated. The library is operated by volunteers. For more information, call 812-825-5005 or email

Clay County: A wonderful place to live, and to visit

Sports and band are very important parts of our everyday lives Clay City High School only one won sectional championship in the 2020-21 school year, but the Eels parlayed that victory into a state runnerup finish in the state tournament. Northview won seven team championships in the last school year — baseball, basketball, cross country and tennis in boys’ sports and cross country, soccer and softball in girls’ sports. Several other individual athletes advanced to state finals competition. Both Northview and Clay City have strong high school band programs, and compete successfully at the state level within their enrollment classifications.

The ‘Crown Jewel of the City’ In 1948, the residents in Brazil extended an invitation to the Brazilian national president to visit. Unable to attend, he sent a diplomatic gesture of friendship and appreciation. The Chafariz dos Contos Fountain at the entrance to Forest Park was presented to the City of Brazil as a gift from His Excellency Eurico Gaspar Dutra in 1950, and officially dedicated at a community ceremony on May 26, 1956. Sculpted in granite by Tito Bernucci, the 104-piece fountain replicates one in Reinaldo Square Alves de Brito in Ouro Preto Minas Grerais in 1745. A restoration project of the Brazilian fountain was completed on June 14, 1997. To ensure the long-term preservation of this impressive landmark, the Brazil Parks Association hired Tri-C Plastering Inc. (of West Terre Haute) to redo the masonry work. The finished work is shown in the top photo. Below are a photo of work being done in October 2019 and the plaque describing the significance of the monument..
