Fort Wayne is a riverine city in northeast Indiana. The state's second largest city, Fort Wayne was built at the confluence of three rivers: the St. Joseph River, St. Marys River and Maumee River.

Some history. In 1794 the 'fort' in Fort Wayne was built near the Indigenous Miami village of Kekionga. In the language of the Miami tribe, 'kekionga' may means Blackberry Patch though this is disputed.

Each year the people of Fort Wayne invite visitors from throughout the nation to celebrate the pioneer spirit of John Chapman, better known as "Johnny Appleseed," Chapman was a colorful character of the Indiana frontier in the early 1800s. During the latter part of his life, Chapman traveled the countryside on foot, planting orchards in Fort Wayne and surrounding areas. In the process, he became a national folk hero and his gravesite memorial area in Fort Wayne's Archer Park has been designated a National Historic Place.

Points of Interest: Filtration Plant

The Three Rivers Water Filtration Plant was constructed at the confluence of Fort Wayne's three rivers in 1933. When it was built, it had the capacity to produce 24 million gallons of treated water per day (MGD). Since the original construction there have been two major additions: a 24 MGD expansion in 1955 and a 24 MGD addition in 1981. The total capacity of the Plant today is 72 million gallons per day, enough to supply the needs of Fort Wayne for at least the next 10 to 15 years.
