Wabash is small town town in northern Indiana. The schools are very good and offer lots of college level courses. The town is lacking in terms of things to do, but it is enough to keep you busy.

I've lived here my whole life there just isn't very many things to do except drive around and go to Walmart. We have a YMCA but its kind of expensive.
If you take away the crime and declining education, the area is a wonderful one. When I went through school in Wabash, the education was fantastic. I believe the downfall of education has come from the addition of computers from grades 3 - 12. The downtown area is growing more and more interactive to the public.
