Evansville was settled by immigrants on the banks of River Ohio some 200 years ago, in 1812. It is the third largest city in Indiana with a population of approximately 121,500. This region is fairly flat with a few small hills and valleys.
Evansville has a continental climate with temperatures ranging from 0°C to 26°C. Due to its proximity to River Ohio, it was initially named La Belle Rivière, meaning ‘The Beautiful River’, by the French explorers. Later, it was named Evansville after Robert Morgan Evans who was one of its founders.
During the Second World War, Evansville was one of the largest producers of some of the important war equipments like Tank Landing Ships and Thunderbolts. At present, industries like manufacturing, retailing, distribution and health care form the backbone of the economy.

Overall Guide : The Victory Theatre is renowned for hosting numerous performances throughout the year, including classical performances, pop music performances and a variety of other concerts. Mesker Amphitheatre has a capacity of 8,500 and is worth a visit. The annual West Side Nut... more Club Fall Festival is held in October and draws a huge crowd from all over the world with the major attraction being the food which includes elephant ears, corn dogs, grasshoppers covered with chocolate and brain sandwiches. The Angel Mound State Historic Site, Evansville Museum of Arts, History and Science and the Reitz Home Museum are some of the great places for those interested in history. Burdett Park and the Musker Park Zoo and Botanic Park offer a lot for recreation. The first ever riverboat casino in Indiana, the Casino Atzar, consisting of a huge casino, a big hotel, shops, restaurants and so forth, should be visited at least once.
