Chesterton is what has become known as a collar community. It is a small, yet quickly growing town nestled in between the rolling dunes of the Indiana Dunes State Park & National Preserve. Immediately to the west is the heavy Steel industry with the largest collection of plants in the world. In Chesterton, from the shores of Lake Michigan you can see the skyline of the cosmopolitan center of Chicago, just 45 mins away.
Take a trip down memory lane with the town history, learn about the local foundation of Chesterton with its schools and kick off your shoes and have some fun at the beach or visit a festival, peek into the antique shops or ride on the community bike trails.
