Severns Bridge John Severns, Sr., a native of Wales, is

John Severns, Sr., settled with his wife and five children on the south bank of the Patoka River, two and one-half miles north of Princeton, Indiana at a point now known as Severns Bridge, where he ran a ferry boat. This point was long known as Severns Ferry, later Severns Bridge. Because of his knowledge of the Indian dialect, their manners and customs, he was able to make friends with the Indians and they permitted him to settle among them. At that time there was a large Indian town on the north bank of the Patoka river, nearly opposite his home. John Severns, Sr., died in about 1829. Severns Bridge was constructed in 1908 and rehabilitated in 2009 by the local government and Federal Highway funds. The benches, picnic areas and walking path were donated by Toyota Motor Manufacturing Indiana and built by Toyota team members.

recognized as the first white settler in Gibson County. While enlisted as a soldier during the Revolutionary War, he secured a furlough to visit his parents in the wilds of West Virginia. While there, he was captured along with his entire family by Indians. His father, mother, a younger brother and sister were murdered by them while he and his older brother were held as prisoners and taken back to an Indian town somewhere on the headwaters of the White River. After being a prisoner for seven years he made his escape and soon afterward married and settled in Kentucky where he lived for three years. His older brother, who was captured with him was given to another family of Indians and taken away and he never saw him again. This brother was adopted by a prominent chief and later married an Indian woman. In 1789

The Log Inn The historic Log Inn Restaurant was built in 1825 as a trading post and stagecoach stop. The first stage coach started running on what was once an Indian trail between Evansville and Vincennes in 1824. The fare was $3.50, four to six horses were used and changed every 12 miles.It is reported that, in 1844, Abraham Lincoln stopped here during a campaign tour speaking for presidential candidate, Henry Clay. The fourth owner of the Log Inn was Henry Haub who later founded the nearby town of Haubstadt in 1855.Throughout its long history, the physical structure of The Log Inn has undergone many transformations. Though none of the original log structure remains visible today from the outside, visitors can still see and dine in one of the original log rooms.It is reported that, under the log part of the building, there is a full cellar which was reputed to have been used as a hiding place for runaway slaves during the Civil War period.Today, The Log Inn is recognized as the oldest restaurant in the state of Indiana. It is widely known for its family style dinners and has been named as one of Indiana’s Favorite Hometown Restaurants by the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns.

Wabash & Erie Canal

The Wabash and Erie Canal was a shipping canal that linked the Great Lakes to the Ohio River via a man-made waterway providing traders with access from the Great Lakes all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. Completed in the mid-1800’s most historians agree the period between 1847 and 1852 was the heyday of the canal. In Indiana, the 40-foot wide canal was built mostly by Irish immigrants using shovels, picks, wheelbarrows, and the horse-drawn slip-scoop. By 1837, there were 1,000 laborers employed on the state’s canal system. Accidents, fever, cholera, fights, and snakebite exacted a heavy toll on the workforce. It has been reported that the toll in lives from the building of the Canal was one person for every six feet of completed Canal in the forty-mile stretch between the Indiana / Ohio

state line and Junction, Ohio. This figure, however, has been vigorously contested by some canal historians. Several types of boats traveled on the canal but the two used for business were the packet and the line boat. The packet was primarily used for transportation of passengers while the line boats hauled freight. From 1853 until its demise, canal receipts steadily declined. The canal could only remain navigable for eight months a year. One of the great ironies of history is that the slow-paced, mule-driven canal boats transported the rails from foundries for building the railroads

which ultimately put the canal out of business by the 1870’s. Though most of the canal has long since deteriorated, parts of the towpath and some small segments of the canal itself are still visible along the south side of the gravel road which runs along side of the canal.
