Town of Coatesville, Indiana. All rights reserved.
Although difficult to determine the exact date Coatesville was formed, zone authority states that a town plot of some kind was made of the town in the early 1860's. Prior to the town plotting, it is known that there had been a village here for several years.
The name "Coatesville" came from an early settler named Henry Coates who gave some land for a town site and because of his liberal offering, the village took and has retained his name. The town really got started when the Pennsylvania Rail Road was completed in the early 1850's.
