Kendallville – A Great Place to Call Home.

Northeast Indiana has something to offer everyone! We have an abundance of churches for all faiths, lakes galore for those fishermen and women and swimmers and skiers alike. Kendallville is home to many parks for the local children (and adults too) to enjoy on nice afternoons. Festivals abound, a winery and campgrounds. The list just goes on and on. There is one one town in particular in northeast Indiana that we consider to be extra special, that is our hometown of Kendallville.

Kendallville began with a wigwam made by David Bundle in 1833. Later that same year Mrs. Frances Digman, a widow, came and bought out Bundle and established the first real home in Kendallville, located near what is now the intersection of State Street and Gold Street. Later in the 1930’s and 1940’s more arrived and a gentleman by the name of William Mitchell secured land building a town. The town was given the name Kendallville in honor of the then Postmaster General, Amos Kendall.

Today Kendallville is still an excellent town to live in and a great place to raise a family. Kendaville has wonderful schools for children to learn, beginning at the elementary level going all the way through high school. The Impact Institute also provides a multitude of options to take advantage of specialized training.
