Located just 15 minutes from Lake Michigan in La Porte County, Westville is a small town with a bright future. Ideally positioned with Michigan City, La Porte and Valparaiso all located within 15 minutes of its downtown area, it offers the convenience of being close to bigger cities while still enjoying the charm of a rural lifestyle.

Originally settled by the Potawatomi Native American tribe, La Porte County was founded in 1832 by French travelers who named it after the French word for “the door,” as it provided a gateway to land further west. As the original county was rather disjointed and unorganized, it took a number of annexations to bring La Porte to its current state. Starke County was annexed in 1842, and large sections of St. Joseph County were annexed in 1850, creating the boundaries that currently exist today. There is some dispute about the correct spelling of the county, whether it is “La Porte” or “LaPorte,” but both are widely accepted as being correct.

Although Westville is small in size, it has its own public school system. Comprised of two schools, Westville Elementary School and Westville High School, the district serves over 500 students. The town is also home to the Westville Public Library, one of the few towns in the area to have its own library. Purdue University North Central is located just outside of downtown Westville. Just off the Indiana Toll Road, Westville is situated 45 minutes from downtown Chicago and 30 minutes from South Bend.

La Porte County is known for its scenic parks and numerous Maple trees. With over a dozen parks and nine lakes, La Porte provides residents with abundant opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. The La Porte County Fair, the oldest county fair in Indiana, is held every summer, as well as annual boat and bicycle races. La Porte is served by Amtrak, offering daily rail service to Chicago.
