Hamilton County, Indiana is located just north of Indianapolis and is part of the Indianapolis-Carmel-Anderson, IN Metropolitan Statistical Area. Since the early 21st century, Hamilton County has been the second most populous county in central Indiana. It is home to four cities: Carmel, Fishers, Noblesville and Westfield. Belgian immigrants began settling in the Noblesville area of Hamilton County in the 1890s.
Chain migration also led many first-generation Serbian immigrants who had settled in Indianapolis, and their children born in Indiana, to move to Arcadia, Carmel, Sheridan, Noblesville and Cicero in the early 20th century. German-Americans were the second largest ethnic group in the county at the turn of the century. During World War I, Hamilton County was characterized by an extreme increase in anti-German sentiment. Wilhelm Street in Noblesville was changed to Washington Street and German-Americans were harassed and abused by their neighbors.
