History

The area, now in southeastern St. Joseph County, was first settled in 1835. The first post office was built in 1837. In 1852, land for a railroad station was donated by William Lock, on the condition that the town be renamed "Lock's Station," which it was. Five years later, however, by popular demand the town assumed its original name, and was officially incorporated into a village in 1859.
