Ottawa Riverfront and Confluence
Located in a beautiful valley at the confluence of the Fox and Illinois Rivers, Ottawa’s natural setting is as appealing today as it must have been when Native Americans, French explorers and early settlers traversed the woodlands and rivers. Abe Lincoln last visited Ottawa in 1858 to debate Stephen Douglas in the first of the great debates, an event that has been memorialized with heroic-sized bronze sculptures of these men in downtown Washington Square.
