Kosciusko County Courthouse in Warsaw, Indiana

This Site is Available for Adoption

Kosciusko is one of the counties in the northern Indiana Lake Region. Kosciusko County was organized between the years of 1835 and 1837, and is named in honor of Thaddeus Kosciuszko, a Polish Noble who fought with George Washington in the Revolutionary War. He was born in Warsaw, Poland, thus suggesting the name Warsaw for the county seat. In area, this is one of the largest counties in the state of Indiana, with a total of 541 square miles in its seventeen townships.

Kosciusko County is privileged to have a wealth of natural lakes, which provide recreational boating, fishing, and general enjoyment. In the State of Indiana there are 44 major lakes. The county is privileged to have Lake Wawasee, which is the largest natural lake, at approximately 3400 acres, and Lake Tippecanoe, the deepest lake, at approximately 120 feet.

In addition to its wonderful natural resources, the county seat, Warsaw, boasts the title of "Orthopedic Manufacturing Capital of the World." The county is also fundamentally an agricultural area, having some of the best soil in the northern part of the state. Portions of its land is underlaid with large deposits of marl.
