Where is the Wealthiest Part of Indiana?

Carmel is one of the most affluent cities in Indiana, boasting an average household income of over $112,765. This is largely due to its strategic location near Indianapolis and Danville, as well as its proximity to two major interstates (I-465 and I-70). Avon has seen a significant population growth, rising from around 9,000 residents to more than 17,453 (2011). Margaret Health, which operates a hospital near Dyer, also employs an additional 800 workers. Munster, located in Lake County, has a population of 22,689 (201).

Bargersville is one of the wealthiest cities in Indiana, with a population of less than 7,085 (201). It has a poverty rate of only 9.8% and a very low unemployment rate. This small town is located just west of Crown Point and is less than an hour's drive from Chicago. It's currently undergoing a construction boom with hundreds of newly built homes for sale.

John is also one of the most polite places in the Hoosier State. San Juan is home to just under 16,000 Indiana residents and nearly 40 percent of its population holds a bachelor's degree. An estimated 97.1 percent of adults in San Juan have graduated from high school, the highest proportion in Indiana according to the study. The Sanctuary of the Passion of Christ is located in this small town and includes a half-mile trail and a garden with 40 bronze statues.

Through scenes and recorded narratives by veteran journalist Bill Kurtis, visitors travel with Jesus to Calvary. Pittsburgh is another affluent city in Indiana with magnificent homes built by some of the country's richest families such as Heinz and Carnegies. It is 100% residential except for schools, churches and private clubs. The sources of wealth for many of the wealthiest cities are often closely linked to the sources of net worth for their wealthiest residents.
