Fishers history:

In June of 1872, Salathiel Fisher divided up his land into lots for a town. The Post Office was established under the name of "Fisher's Switch" on September 20, 1872. On February 27, 1891, "Fisher's Station" was approved and declared a legal corporation. On April 28, 1893, the post office dropped the apostrophe in "Fisher's Switch." On September 15, 1908, the post office dropped "Switch" making the town "Fishers" as it is known today.
Like many new towns in its era, Fishers grew up around the railroad. The train station is located in the center of town and houses the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Fishers Chamber of Commerce and the Hoosier Heritage Port Authority.

The sister city of Fishers is Billericay, England. The search for a sister city began in 1996. A town of over 700 years, Billericay was also home to a number of individuals who sailed on the Mayflower to America. It is now a modern thriving center of business and located very close to London, allowing a daily interchange of commuters.

The Ambassador House is one of the oldest existing structures in Hamilton County. It was built more than 170 years ago near the corner of 96th Street and Allisonville Road. Addison Harris, prominent Indianapolis attorney and U.S. Ambassador to Austria-Hungary, called this home.
