Conditions Governing Use
During the mid-to-late 19th century, business and industry in Attica centered around the Wabash River, which was used to power mills for lumber, flour, and textiles, and later, other manufacturing industries such as factories producing wagons, farm implements, drain tile, pork products, and other items, sprung up following the construction of the Wabash and Erie Canal. The railroad rendered the canal obsolete by 1875 and business suffered. New industries took the place of the old ones, and today, Attica's factories produce parts for heavy earth-moving equipment for road and building construction and electric products like batteries and radio materials.
