The town offers plenty of things to do, whether your interests lie in arts and culture, the outdoors, history or fine dining.
The History of Merrillville
The area that's now Merrillville was once a densely wooded region inhabited by Potawatomi tribe. Much of the woodland was cleared in 1834, and it became known as McGwinn Village. Settlers began moving to the area a year later when it was visited by Jeremiah Wiggins, who renamed it Wiggins Point. It quickly became a popular stop for travelers heading west.
After Wiggins passed away, the population decided to change the name to Centerville. It was later changed again to Merrillville in honor of Dudley and William Merrill, brothers who made significant contributions to the area's economic and cultural development.
Many people come to Merrillville because they want to take advantage of the area's economic diversity as well as its proximity to Chicago. The town is home to a number of different businesses, which provide a range of local jobs to consider.
Merrillville is considered northwest Indiana's retail trade hub due to its thriving commercial corridors.

Or you can look for a job at Ameriplex at the Crossroads, a large industrial and technology park in Merrillville.
