Tippecanoe RiverEdit This Page

From FamilySearch Wiki


Running a gentle 182 mile long course, the Tippecanoe flows from Big Lake in Noble County to the Wabash River near Battle Ground. It is one of the tributaries for the Wabash River. The name, "Tippecanoe" comes from a Native American word for Buffalo Fish. Spanning 14 counties, the river is fed by 88 natural lakes in Indiana and is home to a number of endangered species. In the early days of settlement, it was a navigable river that led to European settlements in the area.

It runs in a meandering course through the following counties:

  • Marshall County
  • Fulton County
  • Pulaski County
  • White County
  • Carroll County
  • Tippecanoe County
