The mill you highlight.....is a few miles of lakefront...sandwiched between twenty miles of state and national parkland.

Compare that to Chicagos North Shore, which doesn't have Dunes, has dinky little beaches, and is the exclusive preserve of wealthy residents of the towns along the Shore.

If you've never experienced a Duneland sunset when the ☀️ sets behind the Chicago skyline.....you simply have no idea the beauty Chicagoland is capable of.

And for all you industro-phobes who don't understand that Chicago was built on industry....

The location of the two largest steel mills in North America in the Dunes may seem anti-envitonmental ....


But their location, at the heart of the industrial economy on the largest rail/highway nexus on the continent...is environmentally beneficial...as the massive amounts of iron ore are floated from the Hibbing Range on Lake Superior directly to the blast furnaces...no need to ship that raw material by train/truck.

The Region is quite distinct from the state. The Region is Booming ...unlike the rest of Chicagoland

Indiana has adopted a southern style economic structure for many years. That means low taxes, low regulations, low educational attainment, low wages, poor environmental standards, and poor infrastructure. Yes, that results in cheap housing prices due to the brain drain in most of the state other than parts of the Indianapolis metro area, mostly Hamilton, Boone, and Hendricks counties where 75-80% of the population growth in the state comes from.

You say this like its a bad things, meanwhile southern states like Texas, NC, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida are getting flooded with new residents, constant corporate relocations (especially Texas), and being one of the fastest growing economies in the country.


Meanwhile high tax northern states like Illinois are losing residents and corporations. Always see headlines of Illinois being one of the highest moved out states. wonder why
