Fawn River

The Fawn River, located in the northeastern part of Indiana, is generally considered to be one of Indiana’s most adventurous rivers. The 44-mile river corridor is twisting and narrow with considerable marsh area along the banks. Unfortunately the river is also crossed by a number of major roads which may detract from the wild character of the river corridor.

The Fawn River rises from a lake in the northwest corner of Steuben County and is supplied by 40 other morainal lakes adjacent to its banks and also by many small tributaries. The many lakes owe their existence to the last advance of the glaciers. In the early days, the Fawn River’s water turned mill wheels at settlements in Nevada Mills, Fawn River, Greenfield and Orland.
