    Connersville is a nice sized town of 13,300 (down 14% since 2000) located along Indiana Highway 44 in eastern Indiana. When Fayette County was laid out in 1818 Connersville became the county seat. Connersville was called "Little Detroit" in the early 1900s because several automobiles were manufactured here including Cord, Auburn, Dusenberg and the body of the Willys Jeep. Famous people from Connersville are Howard Garns who invented Sudoku and famed director Robert Wise who directed "The Sound of Music" and "West Side Story". Connersville is still the county seat of Fayette County. Fayette County was named for Marquis de la Fayette a hero of the Revolutionary War. The Fayette County Courthouse is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
