Wabash County Almost a Giant

Wabash County, they named it after the Wabash River. The name “Wabash” is an English spelling of the earlier French name for the river, Ouabache. French traders derived the French version from the Indian name for the river, Wabashike (pronounced “Wah-bah-she-keh”) (meaning “pure white”.) Much of the river bottom is white limestone, now obscured by mud.
