Boating, Fishing, and Travel Information for Calumet City, IL

Calumet City is a south suburb of Chicago. Calumet was founded in 1893 when the villages of Schrumville and Sobieski Park merged under the name of West Hammond, since it lies on the west side of the Illinois-Indiana line from Hammond, Indiana. In 1924, West Hammond officially became Calumet City after its citizens voted to change the name in 1923. A landmark and point of pride among Cal City residents is the pair of large water towers painted like the popular “Have a Nice Day” smiley faces.
