Welcome to St. John, Indiana!

Located 24 miles southeast of Chicago, St. John is filled with quiet neighborhoods, quality schools and churches. St. John is a well planned community. An extensive bicycle and pedestrian trail winds through lovely subdivisions. Over 20 well equipped parks and an active Park program provides a myriad of activities for our residents. We have many local specialty shops and selected larger retail stores. So whether you have a growing family, are empty nesters or somewhere in between you'll find we are close enough to urban areas to make it a short drive there and yet far enough away to be a refuge of quiet simplicity.

A Town You Can Call HOME.
