Porter County is a county located in the state of Indiana.  As of 2012, the population was 169,672.  Much of this  population growth has to do with the expansion of the Chicagoland area.  The county seat is in Valparaiso.  This county is considered part of Northwest Indiana.


Porter County is the site of the Indiana Dunes, a national park.  A museum called the Hour Glass located in Ogden Dunes, contains showcases that exhibit the significance of these Dunes.


Porter County was occupied by the Algonquian people named by archaologists as the Huber-Berrien.  This was a culture that arrived after the glaciers shrunk around 14,000 years ago and the rise of glacial Lake Algonquian, around 7,000 years ago.


The native people in this area were recorded during the Iroquois Wars (1641–1701) as being both Potawatomi and Miami.


Porter County was founded in 1836.  From 1832 to 1836, this area was part of La Porte County.  It was named after Capt. David Porter, a naval officer during the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812.

  • 5 Steps in handling your personal injury case

    #1.  Get immediate medical care The extent of your  injuries or of others is very hard to diagnose at the time of your incident.  Serious injuries  may or may not result in immediate pain or discomfort. Call 911 or emergency  services after any serious accident or injury.

  • Do not make any conclusive statements

    #2.  At the time or your accident  or injury it is common try to  analyze your injuries or all the circumstances of the accident. In most cases, this should not be done during the stressful aftermath of an accident. If other parties make statements make note of  their comments. Do not sign documents or make statements to an insurance adjuster.

  • Cooperate with emergency authorities

    #3.  Cooperate with  medical care and law enforcement authorities. Provide requested motor vehicle, insurance or personal ID information.  Capture pictures (via cell phone) of important details of your accident (by an uninjured party).

  • Contact an attorney to review your injury case

    #4.  Each personal injury case has unique circumstances which can only be addressed from an experienced and qualified personal injury attorney.  Contact an attorney for a confidential consultation as soon as possible.

  • Be Patient - Follow medical care directives

    #5.  Medical injuries can take time to fully diagnose. One painful  injury can mask a completely different and more serious injury.  If you experience any medical issues after your incident contact a medical professional immediately. Keep all incident and medical records for your attorney's review.
