The Honorable John Young, Greensburg, Westmoreland County, presided over the first term in December of 1806. Later, in 1874, the Legislature caused Indiana County to become a separate judicial district, the Fortieth Judicial District. In the fall of 1874, Judge John P. Blair was elected as judge and served until January, 1855. Since that time, the Court has rendered thousands of opinions and decisions having a direct impact on the citizens of Indiana County.|
