Welcome to the City of Knox

Knox City Hall is located at 101 West Washington Street.

  

The City Officials welcome you on behalf of the residents of Knox. We hope that you will find this a friendly, safe and prosperous community in which to live, work, learn, and play.

The City of Knox is located in Center Township and is the county seat for Starke County, Indiana. The population was 3,721 in the 2000 census. The city was founded in 1851 and named after General Henry Knox. Knox was also the home of Indiana Governor Henry F. Schricker.

City of Knox Flag

knox-city-flag.jpgThe  Knox City flag was designed by 16 year old Knox High School junior Raluca Fodorean. Raluca selected the late 19th century Romanesque tower of the Starke County courthouse to symbolize the city. To identify the city, she inscribed "Knox Indiana" in a bold Helvetica type font, colored in "Redskin red" around her line art rendering of the architectural landmark. This insignia is centered in a field of white silk, edged in gold fringe.  The flag is on display at City Hall.
