Chesteron: when you know you're not in Kansas anymore
|The Martin Young House was built in 1878 in the Italianate style. It is individually listed on the National Register.|
I developed a close association with a non-profit organization that was doing National Register work in Lake and Porter Counties by the end of 2008. They asked me, as a pilot project I believe, to complete a nomination for a historic neighborhood on the west side of Chesteron's downtown. At this point, what I knew about Northwest Indiana was merely what could be viewed from the toll road.
|The Henry Christianson Home was built by the owner who was a brick mason in c. 1880.|
