Boone County was formed April 1, 1830, and named for frontiersman Daniel Boone.The county commissioners met near the center of the county on May 1, 1831 to identify a county seat, which by law had to be within 2 miles (3.2 km) of the county’s center; the city of Lebanon was selected to serve this purpose, replacing Jamestown (Founded 1830) which had served as interim county seat. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boone_County,_Indiana
