The first white man known to have resided in Tippecanoe Township was a Frenchman named William Burnett who establish a trading post between the mouth of Burnett's creek and the Tippecanoe River. Burnett's daughter married John Davis who established a Wabash River ferry near the outlet of Burnett's creek in 1823. The ferry was in operation up until the bridge's construction in 1912.
