Griffith, Indiana Real Estate and Community Information
Welcome to your one-stop resource for all things Griffith, Indiana Real Estate!
“The town that came to the tracks,” known today as Griffith, once boasted in the Guinness Book of World Records as being the town having the most baseball diamonds and for having the location where the most railroad tracks met at one point. It had been the railroads passing through town, heading to and from Chicago that kept the town alive for many years, lending stability to Griffith through the panic of 1893, and the Great Depression. Though there is only one remaining railroad travelling through town today, Griffith remains a vibrant community dedicated to the ideals of hard work and community learned from the past.
