Our popularity is a combination of 101 lakes, Pokagon State Park, Tri-State University, a nationally recognized K-12 school system, and a hard working, well-trained work force. We are a community looking to the future. We have started implementing a high-speed fiber optics system throughout our City, and we hope to have both of our industrial parks lit up by the end of 2004. Our nationally recognized Tri-State University and all that it offers, helps make a community our size somewhat unique. We are truly at the "Crossroads of America" with I-69 and the Indiana Toll Road intersecting in our county. We also have an airport just four miles from our city.
