La Porte

Overview

About La PorteFounded in 1830, La Porte, French for “the door,” was so named because of its strategic location near several lakes at the northern edge of Indiana's central forests, where the land opens onto rolling prairie. La Porte is a center of diversified industries. Products manufactured include rubber items, industrial blowers and radiators.

Fox Memorial Park features picnic areas and playgrounds as well as an outdoor amphitheater. Fishing, hiking, cross-country skiing and a nature center are offered at Luhr County Park. Recreational pursuits available at Soldiers Memorial Park include a beach and hiking trails around Stone and Pine lakes.
