Otterbein is a quaint little town located in Northwest Indiana. Otterbein is uniquely located across the county lines of Benton and Tippecanoe Counties! Our little town boasts three factories, two banks, a wonderful elementary school and a beautiful newly built library and those are just some of the highlights!

We have small town amenities including a Post Office, Funeral Home, Grocery Store, Gas Station, Bar & Grill, Pizza King® and  the Dugout Drive-In. We are just a short drive (less than 15 minutes) from the “Big 10” University of Purdue with all of the conveniences of large city products and services! We welcome you to our website and look forward to you stopping by one of our incredible hometown businesses!
