Songs About Indiana, The Hoosier State

The state song is "On The Banks of the Wabash, Far Away" by Paul Dresser. It was one of the most popular pieces of sheet music in the 19th century. It was a national hit several times by different artists in the early years of the recording industry: George J. Gaskin (1897), Steve Porter (1898), Roger Harding (1898) and Harry Macdonough & American Quartet (1913). The state's motto is "Crossroads of America." One of the state's most well known attractions is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway where the Indy 500 is held every Memorial Day weekend. Important sports history has been written in Indiana as Fort Wayne was the site of the nation's first pro baseball game. Indiana means "Land of the Indians" and was named by the French. The state is covered with cornfields.
