Marktown, Indiana

Marktown is the closest you'll ever get to being on another planet on the southeast side of Chicagoland. It sits in the middle of an oil refinery, and looks like an English village. See the satellite image here and the bird's eye here. You need to make it to Marktown; it is totally surreal.

If that's the place I'm thinking of, it's also near the steel mills. From what I've been told, it used to be the German/Bavarian (?) workers' town, built like the homes in their old country.
