Fort Wayne, IN Real Estate, Fort Wayne Area and Community Information



History

The first people who established modern settlements in what is now the Fort Wayne IN real estate market were a group of  the Miami tribe who settled near what is now Fort Wayne's Lakeside District at least 500 years ago. The area they developed was located on territory that once belonged to a group of ancient Moundbuilder people who disappeared mysteriously during the Middle Ages.

Several Miami settlements played an important role during the American Revolution as battlefields and supply bases. One of these settlements was converted into an American fort in October 1794 by American Gen. "Mad Anthony" Wayne. This settlement formed the basis for Fort Wayne's first residential areas.

The demand for Fort Wayne properties increased during the 19th century after several prosperous industries were established by Samuel Hanna, Theodore Horton and other well-known Fort Wayne inventors. Some of these industries including a baking powder industry, a wire coating industry and one of the world's first washing machine industries.

Thriving radio engineering and life insurance companies played an important role during the 1930s and 1940s in the development of the Fort Wayne real estate market. Many of these industries were located near beautiful residential areas that featured interesting Art Deco and Modernist-style Fort Wayne IN homes.

Fort Wayne now offers home buyers a diversified economy, fun attractions, safe neighborhoods and one of the Midwest's best transportation systems. These benefits make purchasing Fort Wayne homes a wonderful value for anyone who relocates to the Fort Wayne area.
