Fort Wayne: Indiana’s Second-Largest City
With a population of well over 270,000, Fort Wayne is Indiana’s second-most populous city. The name comes from the military fort built there by general Anthony Wayne in 1794. Prior to that, the area was subject to competing parties desiring to control the area, including France, Great Britain, and the Native American tribes living in the region.
Fort Wayne’s location in northeastern Indiana has always been strategic, less militarily these days than in terms of commerce. It’s just 18 miles west of the Ohio border, and 50 miles south of Michigan’s border. Two rivers, the St. Marys and the St. Joseph, meet in Fort Wayne to form the Maumee River, which flows northeast from there to empty into Lake Erie. But with a short land distance to cover, people can connect with the Little River and Wabash river system that leads all the way down to the Gulf of Mexico. Moving goods and cargo through Fort Wayne has been a key driver of its growth from the very beginning.
It’s early importance as a trading post eventually evolved into its importance as a vital center of urban industrialism fueled by the influx of many German and Irish immigrants, along with the railroad. Innovations that originated in Fort Wayne include gasoline pumps, the refrigerator, and the first home video game console.
Today, Fort Wayne is a thriving city with an economy still based largely in manufacturing, but also health care, finance and insurance, and retail trade. It’s pretty common for people to move to Fort Wayne for employment opportunities, but Busy Bee Movers also handles many a commercial project for companies relocating to or within Fort Wayne. Whether the moving service you need is for a household or a business, we stand ready to assist!
