Located on the Mississippi River near its confluence with the Chippewa River, it is the county seat.Wabasha was the setting of the movies Grumpy Old Men and Grumpier Old Men.NameWabasha is named after the Mdewakanton Dakota mixed-blood (with Anishinaabe) chiefs Wapi-sha, or red leaf (wáȟpe šá - leaf red), father (1718–1806), son (1768–1855), and grandson (±1816-1876) of the same name.
