Eagleton, Indiana was a town that lies to the northwest of the city of Pawnee and has a population of 9,500. Shortly after Pawnee was founded in May of 1817, a group of the wealthiest and more prominent citizens, finding the soil untenable and the smell unpleasant, "evacuated" to the west and founded Eagleton. Eagleton is located on top of a hot spring which allows them to grow plants that other cities in Indiana cannot plant. According to Leslie Knope, Eagleton is "the land of rich, snobby jerks". She also accuses the town of having "stole all our money" before seceding two centuries back. Former Eagletonians have a very negative reputation among most Pawneeans, and vice versa.

In "The Pawnee-Eagleton Tip Off Classic", after almost 200 years since the Eagleton Secession, the city is reabsorbed by Pawnee, as it had accumulated too much debt.
