Alexandria is a small city in central Indiana, located in Madison County about 46 miles northeast of Indianapolis. As of the 2000 census, the population was 6,260. The city is located in the heart of rich farm country, which produces corn, oats and wheat. It's also in the Indiana natural gas region, and was one of the principal seats of the glass industry in Indiana - plate glass, lamp chimneys, mirrors, etc., were once manufactured here. The town of Alexandria is also known as Small Town USA and holds an annual festival to honor this heritage. Alexandria's real claim to fame, however, is for being home to what is lauded by the Guinness Book of World Records as the worlds largest ball of paint. This is not just a hollow shell of a ball filled with paint; it's a solid mass of thousands of hardened, thin layers of paint, methodically applied atop each other month after month, year after year. The ball of paint is kept in the home of the original owner and is seen by appointment only. Other nearby "offbeat" places to visit near Alexandria include actor James Dean's Birthplace in Marion, Indiana and the James Dean Museum Collection in Fairmount, Indiana.
