Looking at Fishers today, it’s hard to believe that as recently as the 1950s, only a few hundred people lived here.
The first Euro-American resident was the famous trapper William Conner, who in 1802 settled on a piece of land on the east bank of the White River, which is now preserved as the fantastic Conner Prairie Living History Museum.
Now a large suburban city northeast of Indianapolis, Fishers is home to about 100,000 residents and has new downtown areas to accommodate its growing population.
One is the Nickel Plate District, which takes its name from the old railroad that once passed and has now been converted into a mixed-use trail.
It is the setting for all kinds of events and meetings, animated by a state-of-the-art amphitheater.
