Welcome to Sellersburg, IN

Sellersburg, In, located in Western Clark County in Southern Indiana. It is an ever-growing town that has many things to offer. With just a quick hop, skip, and jump from the booming city of Louisville, Sellersburg is quickly becoming one of the largest Southern Indiana towns. 

In the original plat the town of Sellersburg is spelled Sellarsburgh. This little error, or perhaps the correct spelling of the surname of Mr. Sellers, the founder of the place, was discovered by James Van Hook, of Charlestown, a very excellent gentleman, who had charge of the preparation of a county map.

Sellersburg is very irregularly laid out. None of the forty-two lots have a right angle. It resembles an isosceles triangle pressed together from its base. One writer says, "Sellersburg resembles a box twisted and squeezed together." The village was laid out in 1846 by Moses W. Sellers and John Hill. It is situated on the Jeffersonville, Madison & Indianapolis railroad, about twenty miles from the county-seat. The railroad passes by the east side of the village and has for a station the smallest house for a waiting-room of any village in the county (see picture below). It is not over 7x10, and when the train is about due is packed full of travelers bound for the cities about the Falls. The station is a noted shipping point. 

Moses W. Sellers (see pictures below) was the first man in Sellersburg who kept a store. His place of doing business was in the brick house now occupied by Mr. W.H. Harrod, on the north side of New Albany street. After M.W. Sellers, came his son, A.L. Sellers, who kept in a frame house opposite his father's. He is yet doing business at the old stand. John A. Eisman has been engaged in commercial pursuits in Sellersburg for many years. He has always done much in the way of keeping a saloon and furnishing a place where the boys of the village and country could meet and spend the evening and have what they called a good time. He keeps what may be properly termed a general country store.

With such a colorful past, the future for Sellersburg is just as bright. Growing into one of the largest Southern Indiana cities, Sellersburg has much to offer in way of activities for everyone. Sellersburg is home to 3 golf courses, 19 restaurants (and growing), 3 hotels, and a short drive to 3 movie theaters.
