Founded in 1802 by Samuel C. Vance, Lawrenceburg quickly became a trading center for all of southeastern Indiana, utilizing both its proximity to the Ohio River and the early growth of the railroads to provide the necessary transportation.

Much of the downtown business area is included in a National Historic District. Most of the extensive revitalization and restoration of the buildings and houses in the walking tour area are the result of efforts by the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana, the Lawrenceburg Main Street Association, and the City of Lawrenceburg.
