Facts About Fort Wayne
Early settlers and Native Americans referred to Fort Wayne as a crossroads because of its strategic location at the convergence of three rivers – the St. Mary’s, the St. Joseph, and the Maumee Rivers. The city of Fort Wayne is named after General “Mad” Anthony Wayne, a bold military leader who established the first American fort at the confluence of the three rivers. In 1824, the Indiana General Assembly established Allen County, and the 1830s brought about the construction of the Wabash and Erie Canal in Fort Wayne. This famous canal earned Fort Wayne the nickname “Summit City” because it was the highest point above sea level along the entire canal route. Years later, with the advent of the railroad, Fort Wayne held a key position in the great Pennsylvania Railroad and soon become known as the “Altoona of the West.” As the 1800s drew to a close, industry in Fort Wayne continued to flourish as immigrants poured into the area seeking jobs.
As the 1900s rolled onto American history, Fort Wayne continued to flourish. Even during the Great Depression, Fort Wayne continued its economic boom. Companies like Lincoln National Life Insurance Corporation, Farnsworth Television, Zollner Piston, Central Soya, and the Holsum Bakery all called Fort Wayne home. Notable Fort Wayne landmarks like the Embassy Theatre, the Scottish Rite Auditorium, and the Lincoln Tower were built during these boom years. Today, Fort Wayne is not only the hub of three rivers, but it is also a major metropolitan area and the second largest city in Indiana. Fort Wayne continues to progress as corporations and individuals live, thrive and expand together. In fact during the 1980s and 1990s Fort Wayne received accolades as an All-American City and a Most Livable City. The accolades continue to come in. As Fort Wayne advances in the 21st Century, it continues to look forward to a time of invention, innovation, and progress. In 2017, the Fort Wayne metropolitan area had a gross domestic product (GDP) of $25.7 billion.
The top four industries were: manufacturing ($8.1B), health care ($2.54B), retail trade ($1.4B), and finance and insurance ($1.3B) Government, if it had been a private industry, would have tied for third, generating $1.4 billion. Manufacturing is deeply rooted in Fort Wayne’s economic history, dating to the earliest days of the city’s growth as an important trade stop along the Wabash and Erie Canal. Railroads, introduced shortly after the canal’s arrival, eased travel from Fort Wayne to other booming industrial centers along the Great Lakes, such as Chicago, Detroit, Toledo, and Cleveland. Throughout the early and mid-20th century, manufacturing dominated the city’s economic landscape. From 1900 to 1930, Fort Wayne’s industrial output expanded by 747 percent, with total production valued at $95 million in 1929, up from $11 million in 1899. The total workforce also increased from 18,000 in 1900 to nearly 50,000 in 1930. Companies that had a significant presence in the city include Dana Holding Corporation, Falstaff Brewing Corporation, Fruehauf Corporation, General Electric, International Harvester, Magnavox, Old Crown Brewing Corporation, and Tokheim, among several others, producing goods such as refrigerators, washing machines, automatic phonographs, meat packing products, televisions, garbage disposals, automotive parts and motors, trailers, gasoline pumps, trucks, beer, tents and awnings. Magnet wire production became an especially vital component to the city’s economy. In 1960, Fort Wayne was at the center of the United States magnet wire industry, home to New Haven Wire and Cable Company, Phelps Dodge, Rea Magnet Wire, Superior Essex, and operation at General Electric, producing nearly 90 percent of North America’s magnet wire.
