Kewanna, Indiana Railroad Depot

Description: Kewanna was named Pleasant Grove in 1845 and was later called Pinhook. In 1871 it was renamed for the Potawatomi chief Kee-waw-nee, whose name meant Prairie Chicken. He lived in the area from around 1800 until 1837 when the Indians were removed. This view shows the Kewanna railroad depot and grain elevator in the early 1900s.
