History[edit]

Sanders was originally known as Limestone, and under the latter name was platted in 1892.[3] A Bloomington, Indiana newspaper called The Bloomington Telephone, date illegible, but dated between March 3 and March 13, 1903, printed the following notice: "A bill has passed the Senate and will likely become a law changing the name of 'Limestone,' in the south part of this county, to 'Sanders.' A law is necessary to correct irregularities in titles of land in the town plats."
