Fort Wayne was constructed in 1794 by the US Army, in what was the last in a series of forts constructed near the Miami Indian Village of Kekionga. It was constructed under the guidance of General "Mad" Anthony Wayne, who was an American Revolutionary War statesman. The fort was named in Wayne's honor and was established at the confluence of the Maumee, St. Joseph and St. Mary's Rivers. The city of Fort Wayne became a trading post for settlers from Europe. In the year 1823, the village was platted and following the completion of the Wabash and Erie Canals, the area saw tremendous growth.

The Miami first nation established a settlement at Kekionga in the middle part of the17th century. The settlement was situated along the rivers St. Joseph, St. Mary's and Maumee. The village served the Miami nation and numerous other Algonquian tribes. It is projected by historians that about the year 1676, French priests and missionaries visited the Miami people as they were going home from a mission at Lake Michigan. During the year 1680, a letter was sent to the Governor-General of Canada from Sieur de La Salle, Rene-Robert Cavelier, stating that he also had stopped there.
