Avon, Indiana

Avon is a town in Washington TownshipHendricks CountyIndiana, United States. The population was 12,446 at the 2010 census, and in 2019 the estimated population was 18,706.

The first settlement at Avon was made around 1830. The first post office at Avon opened as “Smootsdell”, in 1868. It was renamed “Avon” in 1870, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1902. There is some disagreement about the origin of the name: some say that the present name is after River Avon in England, while locals tell the story that the town was named after a large feed sign for Avon Seeds that was on the side of the grainery that stood by the railroad crossing at what is now Dan Jones Avenue.

Avon is also know for the railway bridge that is referred to by residents as “the haunted bridge.”


Avon is located in eastern Hendricks County, at 39°45′47″N 86°23′16″W, (39.763160, −86.387900).

U.S. Route 36 is the main east–west road through the town, leading east 13 miles (21 km) to downtown Indianapolis and west 7 miles (11 km) to the center of Danville. Indiana State Road 267 formerly crossed US-36 in the center of Avon, leading north 5 miles (8 km) to Brownsburg and south 4 miles (6 km) to Plainfield, but that stretch of 267 was decommissioned in 2013, and the section through Avon is now officially called Avon Avenue.
