What it's Like to Live in Goshen, Indiana:

When you think of a town in the Midwest, Goshen would fit that vision. Our community has a background in the Mennonite and Amish faith. With this, we have multiple beliefs and feelings within our community, but it is a community full of love and respect. We have the safe, small-town feel while also having a more vibrant and liberal community in our backyard. This contributes to the vast diversity that is experienced in Goshen.

We have a number of outdoor amenities for hunting and fishing, and we experience a vibrant variety of all four seasons. There are also numerous parks and walking trails to experience all of the natural beauty. Residents can also buy fresh, locally-grown food by visiting the Goshen Farmers Market, or you can pick it yourself at Kercher’s Sunrise Orchard. One of our town’s prized possessions is Goshen College, which is associated with the Mennonite Church USA. Middlebury, which is only a 10-15 minute drive from Goshen, also has a great school system, arguably one of the best in Indiana.

Goshen is located in Elkhart County, which is known as the RV capital of the world and brings in a lot of manufacturing business. In addition, Goshen is close to Mishawaka and Notre Dame, a couple of bigger cities, if you are looking for a little more activity. We are also located very close to Michigan and within 2-3 hours from Chicago, Illinois. With its proximity to more urban areas and its safe and diverse environment, Goshen makes a great place to raise a family and call home.
