Around 1828, the settlement's name was changed to Vienna after the city in Austria, the home country of the Cummins family. A Christian church was organized in Vienna in 1839.[16]

By 1882, the population had grown to 450, at which time Vienna had a post office, hotel, chair factory, foundry, and a "large local trade".[17]
