Fishers Business Signs

Fishers is a city located right smack dab in the center of the present-day state of Indiana.  Prior to meddling by citizens of the United States, this area was inhabited by the Delaware peoples.  In 1818, however, the Treaty of St. Mary’s forced the Delaware to give up their claims to Indiana and Ohio.  Prior to this event, in 1802, William Conner settled in what would eventually become Fishers, Indiana, building a log cabin and a trading post.  The town which grew up around this post was named after Salathial Fisher, who platted the buildings there in 1872.  Initially known as ‘Fisher’s Switch’ and then ‘Fishers Station,’ the name was officially changed to Fishers in 1908.  Fishers, Indiana was officially incorporated into a town in 1891, but it wouldn’t be until all the way until 2015 when it would be officially incorporated into a city.

Today, according to a 2016 estimate by the U.S. Census Bureau, the city of Fishers, Indiana has a total population of 90,127 people.  Fishers, Indiana is also considered part of the Indianapolis, Indiana metropolitan area.  According to that same 2016 estimate, the city of Indianapolis, Indiana has a metropolitan area consisting of 855,164 people.  This makes it the 15th most populous metropolitan area in the United States.
