The Wabash River, which has been immortalized in song, literature and folklore, serves as the backdrop for the 145 acre Fairbanks Park located on the banks of the Wabash River near the Terre Haute downtown area. A large portion of the land was donated to the city of Terre Haute in 1916 by Crawford and Edward Fairbanks in memory of their father, Henry Fairbanks. He was an influential citizen in the affairs of Vigo County and Terre Haute, and at the time of his death in 1878, served as the Mayor of Terre Haute. Riverfronts served as the center of communities in their early development and the Terre Haute riverfront property donated by the Fairbanks represent a significant and symbolic gift.
