Cedar Lake is a town in Hanover and Center townships, Lake County, Indiana, United States.  The population was 11,560 at the 2010 census.  The town is known for Cedar Lake (formerly Lake of the Red Cedars, Armour).

 

Cedar Lake was settled by pioneers in the mid-19th century and by 1870, the Cedar Lake Post Office was established, giving the area its name.  After the Monon Railroad came to the lake's western shore in 1882, many new residents flocked to the area along with tourists who saw the lake as a resort destination.

 

From the late 19th century to the early 20th century, Cedar Lake was a popular place for Chicagoans looking for a retreat from the city.  The lake had over 50 hotels at the time and several pavilions and ballrooms that brought many well-known bands to entertain the visitors.
