November 1871 three black men–George Johnson, Squire Taylor, and
Charles Davis–were lynched in Charlestown, then the county seat, for
reputedly hacking to death the Cyrus Park family near Henryville in north
central Clark County. The Henryville community where the murder of the Parks family occurred was all white and might have been a “sundown” town, but I just don’t know.
