Visible by: Everyone

I was told that the White River, as it was renamed by, um, White people, got its name from the Delaware Indians who called it "Wahpihani," meaning "Great White River," because of the visible limestone bed beneath much of it. But now, as I try to verify this to write this caption, I see that Michael McCafferty, in "Native American Place Names of Indiana," says this is hooey. Well. It's still lovely.
