Crothersville was first settled around 1848. The town was surveyed by a gentleman named John Hamacher, who named it Haysville. Mr. Crothers, a railroad agent, promised to build a depot at the site if the residents would rename the town Crothersville.

Crothersville is bissected by US 31 on a north/south axis. The Louisville and Indiana Railroad also runs through the town. It is near I-65, but there is no interchange at Crothersille, the nearest being Austin, Indiana, about five miles away.
