Mitchell, in Lawrence County was built as a railroad town in 1853. At the rural location where two rail lines: "the Monon" and the Ohio and Mississippi Railway crossed, a new town was planned. The owners of the land persuaded one of the surveyors working on the rail lines, Ormsby McKnight Mitchel, a West Point graduate and professor at the University of Cincinnati, to lay out their new town in exchange for naming it for him. So no, it was NOT named for Dennis The Menace's cranky neighbor, Mr. Mitchell. Mitchell was also an attorney and a notable astronomer who became a Major General in the Union Army during the Civil War.
