WELCOME TO BEAUTIFUL ANGOLA, INDIANA
The City of Angola, Indiana is located in the northeast corner of Indiana. We are a destination community because of our 101 lakes, Pokagon State Park, Trine University, a nationally recognized K-12 school system and a hard-working, well-trained workforce.
Our downtown has maintained its historical New England style architectural look while at the same time we have gone through a transformation with our ongoing Downtown Revitalization Program. With the help of two different grants from the Office of Community and Rural Affairs and a TE grant awarded by the Indiana Department of Transportation we have been able to do over $1 million dollars worth of upgrades to the sidewalks around our historic mound with brick pavers, new lighting, new flower boxes and shrubbery, along with new tables and chairs sitting outside of businesses for those visiting our downtown to enjoy. Over 15 new businesses have opened in our downtown area since this project began two years ago. The investments in our downtown by these new businesses have created a new excitement in our downtown area. 2013 will find us in the planning stage for Phase II of our Downtown Revitalization which will begin construction in 2014.
Trine University keeps growing and adding programs to its curriculum. They are now starting their new Rhoades Entrepreneurial Program and the Bock Technology and Commercialization Lab Program on their Angola Campus. These programs will help entrepreneurs of all ages to build new businesses and to help companies needing research and development expertise to obtain all the tools they need to build and expand their businesses in Angola and Steuben County. This helps create a new interest and excitement with Venture Capitalist all over the Midwest who would like to invest in businesses in northeast Indiana. Trine University is a great asset to Angola, Steuben County and the surrounding area.
Cameron Memorial Community Hospital will soon be breaking ground on a new $45 million dollar facility in Angola. This, along with their new Medical Office Building, will insure that Angola and Steuben County will continue to have the best medical care available to the residents and visitors in Angola and Steuben County. This is another asset for this community that is too often taken for granted by many of us that live here. We appreciate the efforts of Cameron Hospital, their doctors, nurses and staff for the great medical care available to us just two blocks from our downtown.
The City of Angola, Trine University, the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership, Steuben County Economic Development Corporation and many other economic development partners are working very hard in our area to make northeast Indiana, Steuben County and the City of Angola, an area where businesses and industries can start here, grow here, and prosper here. This is why Angola and Steuben County is one of the fastest growing areas for manufacturing in the State of Indiana. Come and see for yourself why the City of Angola is truly the main intersection of the “Crossroads of America where we are working together to make dreams a reality”.
