There is a city of  Ft. Wayne in the State of Indiana.  Its in the North East 
corner of the State!!  The county is not Wayne but its Allen County.  I know 
there is a Wayne County in the State of Indiana somewhere. There is a replica 
of the small Fort that was held there.  I wished I had paid attention to its 
history... but I have took a tour there a few times when I was growing up.  
They no longer use the Fort now or have its tour there because no one is 
interested in going there.   It was very expensive for them to upkeep the 
place.  Also, there is a statue of Mad General Anthony Wayne in Downtown Ft.
