    Tough to tell.  The Purdue north golf course tops out about 700 ft, Old
    State Police Post about 690 or 700 ft.  The lowest I see is 580 in your
    area.  That drops off to 670 ft at the pond off the Lindberg Road
    apartments, and 650 ft at Hadley Lake (BTW, Wabash is 510, not 520 as I
    stated).  Airport runs about 590 to 607 ft.  Does not surprise me at all to
    see it drop off 80 feet or so in from your place in the 2.5 miles to the
    airport.  That's not much considering a 200 ft drop in nominally 1 mile or
    less near the river 1 .5 mile from us.
    Looks like (ground level, not second story;-) you could be anything from 690
    680 ft. on my map. The topo map (a 7.5 minute series is a tough tough read
    given the Wabash River valley topography, dirt mounds and bogs left behind
    by the glaciers.)  Often tough to tell if it is moving up or down from the
    700 ft contour.
