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 Saint Joseph River, Saint 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 mean Blackberry Patch though this is disputed.
