Evansville is the third-largest city in the state of Indiana and the largest city in Southern Indiana. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 121,582, and a metropolitan population of 342,815. It is the county seat of Vanderburgh County and the regional hub for the tri-state area.
Settled in 1812, the city is situated on a gentle horseshoe bend on the Ohio River and often referred to as “River City.” One of the most popular attractions in the region is Casino Aztar, the first riverboat casino in the state of Indiana. Evansville is also home to both the University of Evansville and the University of Southern Indiana.
The broad economic base of the region has helped to build an economy which is known for its stability, diversity, and vitality. In 2004 Evansville was named an “All-America City” by the National Civic League and in 2008 it was voted one of the best cities in the country by Kiplinger.
