Churubusco is a town located near the headwaters of the Eel River in the extreme northeast corner of Whitley County, Indiana, USA, about 11 miles northwest of its nearest neighboring large city, Fort Wayne, of which it is considered a bedroom community. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 1,666.
The town got its unusual name from Churubusco, the site of the 1847 Battle of Churubusco during the Mexican-American War; the name is a corruption of a Nahuatl toponym celebrating the god Huitzilopochtli. The town has an annual festival called Turtle Days rooted in the lore of the Beast of Busco, a giant snapping turtle that haunted nearby Fulk's Lake in Allen County.
