The land offered by John and Jarvis Jackson was selected, along with their suggested name of London, honoring their English heritage. The town was founded the next year; its post office established in 1831; and its city rights granted in 1836.During the late 1930s and early 1940s, London served as a central collection agency for books donated to the Pack Horse Library Project.
