Porter County Indiana

Porter County Indiana is bordered by Lake Michigan to the north, Lake County to the west, LaPorte County to the east and Jasper County to the south. The county seat is Valparaiso.

This area developed as the industrialized portion of early Lake County was looking to escape the tensions between the diverse residents as well as the growing population and traffic. Mainly farmland in the past, subdivisions grew rapidly as roadway improvements made commuting possible.

Porter County enjoys the southern coast of Lake Michigan, both economically and recreationally. It transitions beautifully to open space and quaint small town America. If you are looking for low taxes and a quieter, less crowded region…this just might be your new favorite place.
