Moving to Merrillville
The area that is now Merrillville was once a densely wooded region inhabited by Potawatomi Indians. Upon the clearing of much of the woodland in 1834, it became known as McGwinn Village. White 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 had contributed to the area's economic and cultural development.
