Indiana, U.S.A.
Welcome to Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Fort Wayne is a city 18 miles west of the Ohio border, and the seat of Allen County. With around 258,522 people, Fort Wayne is the second largest city in Indiana. The city's history goes back to 1794, when American Revolutionary War statesman Anthony Wayne built Fort Wayne as part of a series of forts near the tribe village of Keionga. The settlement grew as trading post for European pioneers, and the village expanded further with the establishment of the Wabash and Erie Canal and the railroad in the 19th century. Before long, Fort Wayne was a booming manufacturing town, and the modern city still thrives in the areas of distribution, transportation, logistics and various services like healthcare. Fort Wayne is also a major center for the defense industry, which employs thousands people. Fort Wayne is occasionally nicknamed City of Churches, because of its history as a regional hub for Catholic, Lutheran and Episcopal faiths. As of today, there are 360 churches in the city and 54 percent of Fort Wayne's residents identify as religious. Among the major churches are the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Saint Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church and Trinity Episcopal Church. Fort Wayne is a city of culture, and residents and visitors alike have plenty of entertainment to choose from. If in you're the mood for a play or live music, venture down to the historic Embassy Theatre, a 2,471-seat performing arts theater that was originally built as a movie palace in 1928. The theater receives more than 200,000 patrons yearly, and often hosts the outstanding Fort Wayne Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2010, the Cultural District of Fort Wayne was established and is now home to several of the city's major cultural institutions. These include the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Auer Center for Arts and Culture, and the Arts United Center. The latter also houses the Fort Wayne Civic Theatre and the Fort Wayne Dance Collective. With all performance venues covered; should you crave a good movie, check out the Cinema Center, an independent film venue located in the Hall Community Arts Center. Those with kids can bring their little ones to the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo, one of the nation's foremost zoos. The zoo boasts an impressive 1,000 animals of 200 different species, and attracts more than 500,000 visitors each year. For more outdoor recreation, why not bring the whole family to one of Fort Wayne's 86 parks or one of the 100 lakes located within 50 miles of the city!
