Davis Ferry

Davis Ferry 

The first white man known to have resided in the Tippecanoe Township was a Frenchman named William Burnett who established a trading post between the mouth of Burnett's creek and the Tippecanoe River. Burnett's daughter married John Davis who established a Wabash River ferry near the outlet of Burnett's creek in 1823. The bridge you are standing on was built in 1912, the ferry was in operation up until the bridge's construction.
