The City of Elkhart
Just minutes away from the Indiana and Michigan border, Elkhart is located in northwest Elkhart County, one of the state’s fastest-growing counties. It’s known as the “City with a Heart” since the Elkhart and St. Joseph rivers converge to form the shape of an elk’s heart, hence Elkhart. The French name for the Elkhart River, Coeur De Cerf, translates to the name "Heart of a Stag."
The city is also known as the “RV Capital of the World” and the “Band Instrument Capital of the World” thanks to two of its thriving manufacturers. Elkhart is also home to leading manufacturers in the marine, manufactured housing, and other important industries. The city’s thriving business economy is due in large part to the entrepreneurial spirit that has been prevalent in the community for more than a century. It also boasts a substantial civic commitment to economic development and retention, a diverse workforce with a strong work ethic, and a strategic location in the heart of the Midwest.
