East Chicago, like many cities and towns, is made up of unique neighborhoods, each with it\'s own distinct characteristics and needs. From Roxana on the south side, to the Marktown Historic District on the north side, East Chicago is home to 30,000 residents. The city boasts newly remodeled or totally new elementary schools in nearly every neighborhood, two junior high schools, and the outstanding Central High School. The city also has two full service libraries and more than twenty parks featuring everything from a nine hole golf course to two water parks.
For further information in reference to the history of the City of East Chicago we suggest you visit the East Chicago Room of the East Chicago Main Library at 2401 East Columbus Drive, just off of Cline Avenue, or visit the web site at www.ecpl.org.
