Description
Merrillville is in Indiana's far northwest corner. A stopping point for wagon trains heading west, the early settlement had 16 trails radiating in all directions—much like the transportation system that exists today. Of regional importance is the John Wood Mill, part of Old Mill Park, about 8 miles east of SR 53 on CR 330. The first industry in Lake County, the mill has been refurbished and once again grinds corn, wheat and rye.
Noteworthy for its unusual decor is the Sts. Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Cathedral, the only one of this denomination in the state. Dominating 37 acres at 8000 Madison St., the cathedral features a rotunda 100 feet in diameter, 25 large stained-glass windows and Byzantine mosaic work.
The dramatic arts also are represented in Merrillville. The Star Plaza Theatre, adjacent to the Radisson Hotel at Star Plaza resort, I-65 and US 30, presents top-name performers; phone (800) 745-3000 for tickets.
