The smallest of the county’s four municipalities, Wheatfield, Indiana is located at the eastern end of the State Route 10 growth corridor that runs across northern Jasper County. Historically a farming village, today the community functions as more of a bedroom locality for employment centers to the north. Most local businesses are service oriented catering to the residents as well as the agricultural needs of the area.
Wheatfield is growing and this trend is expected to accelerate due in part to the 5-year improvement project underway at NIPSCO’s R.M Schahfer coal fired power generating station. This major investment has created hundreds of construction and installation jobs. The community also boasts new public facilities such as the Wheatfield Library and the $46 million, 1500-student Kankakee Valley Middle School.
This close-knit community is supported by Town of Wheatfield officials that embrace quality development while striving to preserve the country charm atmosphere valued by old and new residents alike. Committed to its heritage while pursuing progress, Wheatfield is building a modern, full-service community of opportunity.
