DID YOU KNOW? At the legislative of 1825, nine years after the admission of the state to union. Clay County was organized from sections of Owen and Vigo counties and was named for Kentucky statesman, Henry Clay. The county’s earliest settlement 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. Named the county seat following Clay County’s organization, Bowling Green was the only community in the county founded before 1830. In 1873, Brazil’s city charter was established.

Where I Call Home… I grew up in western Vigo County where I graduated from West Vigo High school and then from Indiana State University but moved to Clay County and near Brazil in late 1990. I’ve actually lived near Brazil for nearly half my life now and enjoy the area. The people there are very nice and it has that nice small town atmosphere. You come to know the people that work at the various stores and shops and that’s something you don’t find in a larger city. Brazil has most everything you would need and everything is located in a pretty small radius around town. No need to leave the area to get what you need in most cases. That includes a good hospital, places to eat, hardware stores and grocery stores. Overall, Brazil is a great place to live and raise a family with that small town atmosphere.
