Peru and Miami County

Peru is a decent sized town of over 12,000 located in North Central Indiana due north of Indianapolis. Miami County was organized in 1834. The first county seat was Miamisport but Peru was designated the county seat in 1843. The first courthouse burned down and was replaced by this impressive one, which was built using the Beaux Arts Classic style of architecture. Musical playwright Cole Porter was born here.

Historic District

Peru has a small but impressive historic district with several buildings of historic and/or architectural interest.

Veterans Memorial

Peru has several nice veterans memorials, including this one honoring World War 1 Veterans.
