The State of Indiana was near bankruptcy in 1841 due to the inability to repay interest incurred for the Massive Internal Improvement Act. The state liquidated much of its public works. Many of the projects were handed over to the state’s creditors as a way to reduce debt. Only two of the eight proposed infrastructure projects were completed by the creditors.

Name Meaning

English (chiefly West Midlands): habitational name from either of two places named Hadley, in Worcestershire and Shropshire, or from either of two places named Hadleigh, in Essex and Suffolk. The first is named from the Old English personal name Hadda + lēah ‘wood’, ‘(woodland) clearing’; the other three are from Old English hǣð ‘heathland’, ‘heather’ + lēah.
