The LaSalle Bed & Breakfast Recalls the Explorer who in 1680 Founded the First European Settlement in What Is Now Fort Wayne
René-Robert Cavalier, Sieur de La Salle (1643-1687)
The tradition of the Indians, which is undoubtably true, is that one of the missionaries from St. Joseph came to Kekionga [now Fort Wayne] about four years before La Salle came in 1680.
In one local history already published, it is stated that La Salle was at Kekionga in 1680, and at that time caused a small stockade fort to be built here.
