Locally known as the crossroads of America due to its easy access from Interstate 80/94, the Indiana Toll Road, I65 and Lake Michigan, Lake Station is a diverse community with a population of approximately 14,000 people.  The community has a rich South Shore history with its origins started as a result of the Treaty of Tippecanoe in the mid 1800’s.  At the time key groups were in a race to develop a metropolis on the South Shore of Lake Michigan and the most promising cities were Chicago, Michigan City, City West (Indiana Dunes area), Indiana City (Miller Beach area) and Liverpool (presently Lake Station).  Liverpool was chosen as the County seat by having both access to the Little Calumet and Deep Rivers which at the time were both navigable and ripe with commerce.
