Historic Downtown Whiting

About Historic Downtown Whiting

Stroll through Whiting! Explore our Lakefront Park, Whihala Beach, bike paths, festivals and Municipal Sports Complex, or a game at Oil City Stadium. All year long, Whiting offers a variety of activities from dining and shopping to special events like the annual Pierogi Fest which has been featured on Oprah.com and the Food Network. If you’re a history lover, check out the gorgeous Carnegie Building which houses the Whiting Library or the Community Center given as a gift to Whiting by John D. Rockefeller. And don’t forget to catch a movie while in town. The Hoosier Theatre resides downtown and is the only remaining “movie palace” in Northwest Indiana built in 1924 and it’s interior is a “must see!”
