Welcome to the official website of the Town of McCordsville, Indiana.
 
 
With a population nearing 8,000 people, our community is now the second largest municipality in Hancock County. Incorporated in 1988, McCordsville is beginning to feel the effects of being conveniently located near several thriving cities and towns, including Indianapolis and Fishers.
Town Hall
