Indianapolis is synonymous with the Indianapolis 500, but there's a bit more to the city's history than meets the eye. Founded in the early 19th Century on lands previously populated by the Miami and Lenape tribes, the city was designed as a one square mile expanse intended to house the state's government offices. After oil was discovered just west of the city, population boomed, leading to an increase in manufacturing jobs. Even before the oil, however, the city was the site of the iconic American auto race, which has been held annually since 1911. The race, in fact, saw one of the first uses of the rear view mirror, attached to Ray Harroun's car after some inspiration from the original creator Dorothy Levitt.
