History

The town of Central was plotted by William Smith in 1890. It originally contained fifteen lots, two parallel streets coving 5 acres (20,000 m2) of land.

The church in the center of town was deeded its land from Charles Kopp in 1882. The original church then deeded in turn to the Missionary Society of The Churches of Christ in 1907

Longbottom-Hardsaw, the only business still operating in Central, was built in 1947 on the corner of Central and Heth-Washington.

The Central Post office was operated from 1879 until 1999 when the area was taken over by the Mauckport and Corydon Post Offices.

Central had its own school from 1900 to 1945 when it was absorbed into the South Harrison Consolidated School District.
