Area code 765 is a North American Numbering Plan area code for most of central Indiana. It currently serves a horseshoe-shaped region of 20 counties surrounding the Indianapolis area, which is served by area code 317. Some cities included are Anderson, Connersville, Crawfordsville, Frankfort, Greencastle, Kokomo, Lafayette, Marion, Muncie, New Castle, Richmond, and West Lafayette.

History[edit source | edit]

Prior to 1996, 317 covered all of Central Indiana. Eventually, population growth and increased number demand necessitated a split for the region. Beginning on February 1, 1997, with mandatory dialing effective June 28, the greater Indianapolis area retained 317 and the remainder of Central Indiana split off into area code 765.[1] The creation of 765 came amid some fanfare, as it was Indiana's first new area code in 49 years.
