Chatterton was a small town in Adams Township, Warren County, Indiana. It was founded in 1896 and included a school, a general store, and a post office that operated from 1900 to 1906. Though it has since dwindled away completely, the location of the town still persists on county maps, and is cited by the USGS. The mailbox for the single house remaining at the site has "Chatterton" stenciled on it.
