Westchester Public Library
Porter County, Indiana


"Everyone has a place they consider home, and for me it's the Duneland community.  This is a place where people are genuinely interested in one another, are friendly, and know how to work together  - and work hard. We're perfectly situated, with outstanding natural resources and amazing transportation opportunities - including two major express ways, three US highway systems, two major freight lines, a convenient commuter rail line and the Port of Indiana. Duneland is a great place to live, work and play."

Maura Durham, President 
Duneland Chamber of Commerce
