Grist Mill and Wagon at Deep River County Park


Deep River County Park in Northwest Indiana.

Deep River County Park is located along Old Lincoln Highway just north of US 30 in Merrillville, Indiana and is a part of the Lake County Parks Department in Northwest Indiana. This is a historic site that dates back to the mid 1800s when settlers traveled along the Sauk Trail heading to Chicago and Joliet from the east. Deep River was a small independent town in its day long before incorporating into much of the eastern portion of Merrillville. In this photo, a historic grist mill is water powered and is still active today. There are many other historic structures and areas within the park, including a sugar shack used to make maple sugar.
