What is the derivation of most Indiana town names?

Check out the book From Needmore to Prosperity: Hoosier Place Names in Folklore and History by Ronald L. Baker published by Indiana University Press in 1995.

Contact the DNR's Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology (317-232-1646), or Indiana Landmarks (http://www.indianalandmarks.org) for assistance.
