Welcome to Dayton!

Our small-town values and city services combine to make Dayton, Indiana a desirable place to live. We are located an hour north of Indianapolis and two hours south of Chicago. Interstate 65 is our western border, and the cities of Lafayette and West Lafayette, home to Purdue University, are just a few miles away. Hundreds of shops and restaurants are within ten miles via 4-lane state highways. No, we do not have a stop light. We do have a wonderful elementary school and two churches and small businesses. We have a history that spans 186 years. We have water and sewer services to every residence. Cable services, including fiber to home, are available throughout the town. Join us for our meetings at the Town Hall on the first Monday of each month at 7:00pm, when the elected members of the town council act on behalf of our residents.
