Explore Howe LogoThis quaint town just off the Indiana Toll Road was settled in 1834. At that time, it was named “Mongoquinong”, a name that the Potawatomi people had given to the prairie in northeastern Indiana. Shortly thereafter it was renamed “Lima” and was, at that time, the county seat. It was later renamed “Howe” after John B. Howe, a local attorney. Local amenities include a golf course, camping resort, summer farmers market, county park & nature preserve, and several restaurants and ice cream shops. We encourage visitors to explore everything Howe, population 700, has to offer!
