Our small-town values and city services combine to make Dayton, Indiana a desirable place to live. We are located one hour north of Indianapolis and two hours south of Chicago. Interstate 65 is east of our western border, and the cities of Lafayette and West Lafayette, home to Purdue University, are just a few miles away. Hundreds of shops and restaurants are only minutes away via Indiana State Route 38.
No, we do not have a stop light. We do have a wonderful elementary school and two churches and small businesses. The Town of Dayton has a history that spans 190 years. We have water and sewer services to every residence. Cable services, including fiber to home, are available throughout the town.

In accordance with the Executive Order issued yesterday by Governor Holcomb, the Town of Dayton recognizes that citizens should remain home unless it's necessary to go out. Following this directive from the state, our Town Hall will now be closed to the public.
Payments will be accepted over the phone at 765-296-2533 Monday through Friday 9-4, dropped in the slot in the side door, by mail or online at the link here.
Please note that the Town Hall may still be used for essential government functions while the Executive Order is in effect.
Rest assured that our police and other essential employees will continue to do their job using an abundance of caution to keep everyone safe and healthy.
As always we continue to do everything in our power to ensure the safety of residents, employees, and elected officials. We encourage you to contact your elected officials (contact info is at the link above) with any concerns you may have.
