Voice Of The Walkerton Area

The Town of Walkerton is so full of stories!  For too long, the community had no forum to keep up with events, people, history, and special places that made an impression on us?  The Walkerton Independent News has been gone for decades!  We are the voices of rural America! This new lifestyle e-magazine exists to reflect the people of Walkerton, small town sentiments, and  our lives. - Photo by Todd Back

Re-Thinking Downtown

Vibrant and diverse retail is the lifeblood of a thriving community. It makes a cool neighborhood "cool!" Stores with personality, bars with an edge, and restaurants with style & charm throw off energy and put a unique stamp on a particular area! There are great retail spots all over St. Joseph County in all of its townships. But, we need more clustering. Complementary shops, bars, and restaurants creates a density that spawns foot traffic, destination shopping, home buyers, and renters.  - Photo by Denise Alsobrooks




Located at 280 Liberty St. this is a good location for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  The family style friendly atmosphere is charming.  Rustic decor, along with eggs, omellettes, bacon, pancakes, waffles, crepes, coffee, burgers, salads, and steaks.  Let Sunrise start your day !
