Hammond, Indiana... Make This City in Northwest Indiana ( Lake County, IN ) Your Home Sweet Home !

Real Estate Broker/Owner with F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate

 I went to High School in Hammond, IN even though I lived on Chicago's South Side, Bishop Noll Institute had  

a great reputation for being a College Prep School and was only 20 minutes by Car from Home !

    Since Hammond is so Close to The Illinois State Line (Border City) many people choose to live there even if  

they work in Chicago-land. Commute is feasible by Major Toll roads/Expressways or South Shore Train !

Purdue University Calumet Campus in Hammond, Indiana 

The City of Hammond has a

College Bound Scholarship Program for Hammond

residents in which children of Homeowners can apply for

money that the city grants to qualified students that

aides with their children's tuition costs!


There are satellite Campuses in Hammond for Collegiate education - I've attended the conveniently located

Purdue Calumet  in the past for classes !        Purdue Calumet Campus Building In Hammond, IN

    Our Favorite place for Jumbo Fried Shrimp in all of

NW Indiana is Bob's Shrimp. It was around way back

when I was in High School & still offers HUGE delicious

shrimp to go by the pound!

(Bob's Shrimp @ 4748 Calumet Ave. Phone 937-1041)


Affordable Housing still exists in Hammond & nearby Hessville as well !

Jeff & Grace, Your area sounds very nice and the fact that it's very convenient to Chicago.  The shrimp sounds wonderful as well!

Grace and Jeff,  Good morning !

I really enjoyed  reading all about Hammond. One of my favourite cities is Peoria, Illinois and I'm always reminded of it whenever I read anything about Chicago or the Indiana/Illinois border.  Wonderful area....

and I'm with Sally and Carole, the shrimp sound delicious !
