Welcome to the City of Angola, Indiana-the gateway to the northeast corner of Indiana.  We are a destination community for visitors, businesses, and industries and the County seat of Steuben County.  Angola is surrounded by the county's 101 lakes, Pokagon State Park, Trine University, Cameron Memorial Community Hospital, as well as our nationally recognized K-12 Steuben County Metropolitan School District and our hardworking educated workforce. 

This year we are excited about opening our new Angola Innovation Park at I-69 and US Hwy 20.  This park will create new opportunities for industries, hotels and restaurants to locate to and serve our community.  A new hotel has already located here, Wingate by Wyndham is a new 99 room hotel that will be opening around May 1, 2019.  Several businesses and industries are also showing interest in this area already.

If you are looking to retire on a beautiful lake, or you want a great place to vacation, maybe looking for the right place to raise your family, get a job or start a business, Angola, Indiana is the place you want to be.

Pokagon State Park with its refrigerated toboggan, walking and biking trails on beautiful Lake James is a great destination for your family or for a business retreat.  Trine University is the fastest growing private university in the state with many degrees available including engineering, business, entrepreneurial studies, teaching, computerization, several new degrees in the health fields and many more.  Along with the new T. Furth Performing Arts Center, state of the art MTI Basketball Arena and Steel Dynamics Hockey Arena, make this a one of a kind NCAA Division III University in the country that will afford you a great education and university experience.  Angola is also the home of the Bal Sports Academy, where you can send your volleyball player to learn the art of this sport from one of the best in Lloy Bal, former Gold Medal Olympic Volleyball Player.
