The Vigo County Retired Teachers Association members had an enjoyable luncheon followed by a historical presentation on the amazing Wabash River. While VCRTA members see the Wabash River regularly today our view does not match that as described by Caleb Lownes in 1815 as “generally perfectly clear and transparent – exhibiting a clean, gravely bottom.”

Brendan Kearns, of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, provided the presentation of the history of the river, how Terre Haute’s Fairbanks park incorporated the river into its design, the changing wildlife in and around the river, and famous accidents that have occurred in/on the river.
