  1. Wabash River

    The Wabash River (French: Ouabache) is a 503-mile-long (810 km) river that drains most of the state of Indiana in the United States. It flows from the headwaters in Ohio, near the Indiana border, then southwest across northern Indiana turning south near the Illinois border, where the southern portion forms the Indiana-Illinois border before flowing into the Ohio River. It is the largest northern tributary of the Ohio River and third largest overall, behind the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers. From the dam near Huntington, Indiana, to its terminus at the Ohio River, the Wabash flows freely for 411 miles (661 km). Its watershed drains most of Indiana. The Tippecanoe River, White River, Embarras River and Little Wabash River are major tributaries. The river's name comes from a Miami word meaning "water over white stones", as its bottom is white limestone, now obscured by mud. The Wabash is the state river of Indiana, and subject of the state song "On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away" by Paul Dresser. Two counties (in Indiana and Illinois); eight townships in Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio; one Illinois precinct, one city, one town, two colleges, one high school, one canal, one former class I railroad, several bridges and avenues are all named for the river itself while four US Navy warships are either named for the river or the numerous battles that took place on or near it.

  1. wabash river

    The Wabash River is a major river located in the Midwestern United States that flows from the western border of Ohio, through Indiana, and into Illinois, eventually converging with the Ohio River. It is the principal river entirely within Indiana, with a total length of approximately 503 miles (810 kilometers), serving as an important transportation route during the 19th century. The name "Wabash" is derived from a Miamean word, "waapaahšiiki," referring to the color white, as the river has a notable bright reflection due to limestone bedrock in its watershed. Its watershed encompasses over two-thirds of Indiana, including areas of significant agricultural activity.
