Fort Wayne, Indiana’s second-largest city is rich in history and architecture. Fort Wayne is located at the confluence of three rivers- Maumee, St Joseph’s, and St Marys. In the early 20th century, the city’s master plan was proposed connecting the rivers with a network of parkways and boulevards designed by noted landscape architect Arthur Asahel Shurcliff, influenced by the City Beautiful Movement. Fort Wayne’s architecture is home to diverse architectural styles from Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, and Italianate architecture in the early 19th century, to Neoclassical, Colonial Revival, and Art Deco in the early 20th century. Some of the great examples of buildings of that era that have been restored and redeveloped are- Allen county courthouse, Embassy Theatre, Fort Wayne city hall, and many more. The city’s modern, and postmodern architecture was discovered by noted American architects Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis khan, and Eero Saarinen who designed some great buildings and private homes in the city.
