Delivery of Beautiful Floral Arrangements to Rensselaer, IN
The city is located in Marion Township along the Iroquois River, in Jasper County. The city is also the county seat of Jasper County, and a school, Saint Joseph's College, which suspended its operation from 2017 to 2021, is located in the southern part of the city. The area was platted in 1839 and was initially called Newton. It was established along the rapids of the Iroquois River. By 1844 it got the name Rensselaer after a merchant from Utica, James Van Rensselaer, came to the area after his business crashed due to the Panic of 1837. Upon arrival, he took over the farm and land from Joseph D. Yeoman. In 1888 St. Joseph Indian Normal School was established by St. Katherine Drexel an heiress from Philadelphia. She donated $50,000 for the educational purpose of Catholic American Indian boys. The school was able to train 60 boys every year until 1896. The Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions operated the school.
