Mishawaka’s population continues to increase, with over 51,000 inhabitants. The city bears the name of Mishawaka, the daughter of Chief Elkhart, a Shawnee chief. The city’s legal needs are served by the courts of St. Joseph County in South Bend. The city is served by the public schools in and around the city including Walt Disney, Prairie Vista, Elsie Rogers, Elm Road, and Meadow’s Edge elementary schools, Schmucker and Grissom middle schools, and Mishawaka, Marian, and Penn High School, which resides outside the city limits. Major highways in the area include Interstate 80 and 90, Indiana State Road 23, 331 and 933, as well as U.S. Route 20. The Mishawaka Riverwalk is an absolute gem and first-rate example of riverfront revitalization efforts that have taken place throughout the State of Indiana in cities like Evansville along the Ohio, Indianapolis along the White, and New Albany along the Ohio, among others. For a quick history lesson of the city, a visitor need only take a walk to Founders Circle at the Robert C. Beutter Riverfront Walk just northeast of the Ball Band Biergarten. The Circle is in the center of the St. Joseph Ironworks, the creation of Alanson Hunt, referred to as the “Father of Mishawaka.” The City of Mishawaka continues to foster development in Edison Lakes, University Park Mall, and downtown Mishawaka.
