Back To Front Page


The Town of Chesterton is recognizing the generous individuals and corporations who contributed to the recent crowdfunding campaign to raise moneys for the Thomas Centennial Park Restroom and Caboose Project.

A total of $75,407.88 was raised through the campaign, including a $31,000 dollar-to-dollar match from the Indiana Housing and Com-munity Development Authority.

Those funds will be used for landscaping the boxcar restroom and caboose public space as well as for video surveillance equipment.

Park Partner donors contributed at least $2,500; Park Crusaders, $1,000.

Earning a Park Partner designation were the Philanthropic Committee of Urschel Laboratories Inc., with its $10,000 donation; and Hopkins ACE Hardware, owned by Mark Hopkins, who launched a round-up campaign at his business for the duration of the campaign.

Earning a Park Crusader designation were Ann Marie Riley of Riley’s Railhouse; and DLZ Indiana Inc.

The balance of the boxcar restroom project is being funded with a portion of the $2-million park bond issued in 2015.
