Sidney, located in the heart of Shelby County, boasts a proud history with a solid industrial base. Founded in 1819, the town grew into the city it is today because of the feeder canal and early railroads that came through the town. Today there are a large number of businesses and industries that contribute to the city of over 20,000 residents.
Sidney, the county seat, features some unusual architecture for a small town, including the 1881 Courthouse, the 1877 Monumental Building, dedicated to the county's Civil War dead, and the famous Big Four Bridge. The 1918 People's Federal Savings and Loan Building, designed by Louis Sullivan, is a National Historic Landmark.
