Williamsport Falls drops a distance of 67 feet from an overhanging ledge into a rocky ravine. Formed by Fall Branch, a tributary of the Wabash River, the waterfall varies from a mere trickle in the summer months to a spectacular torrent during the spring thaws.
Warren County’s icon depicts water represented by steel spirals as it tumbles down from the roof’s edge. There are seven curved lines that start the steel waterfall just below the roof’s edge and lead into the spirals of water just below.
Designers Jeff Laramore and David Jemerson Young of 2nd Globe, an Indianapolis–based artistic company, designed all 92 of the county sculptures featured on the outside of the Indiana State Museum. Their designs narrate the counties’ famous natives, historically significant events, or their cultural characteristics, and were fabricated and installed by various Indiana sculptors, carvers, glassworkers, metalworkers, and other artisans.
