By Joseph Slacian
 
Wabash County tourism generated more than $9.8 million in total taxes in 2015, up 15.3 percent from 2014.
 
That’s what a new Economic Impact of Tourism in Wabash County study showed, Christine Flohr, executive director of tourism for Visit Wabash County told Wabash County Commissioners on Monday morning. She also was to appear before the Wabash County Council on Monday night.
 
The 15.3 percent increase, according to the study is well above the 2.7 percent median increase for other Indiana counties.
 
Flohr told The Paper of Wabash County that she credits the increase in tourism to “a more focused and collaborative marketing effort.”
