HISTORY

Allen County is named for Colonel John Allen, a figure in the War of 1812. Although it has been claimed that the county was named for Revolutionary War soldier Ethan Allen, the weight of the evidence in favor of John Allen led the General Assembly to declare that the county was named for him. The county seat is Lima.
