St. Joe may be the community you’ve been looking for your entire life. Few small towns in Indiana are quite as small as this one—its population typically hover just under 500. However, the amenities offered and the proactive nature of the town government suggests a much larger city. Add that to the uniformly classic look of the town architecture and the breathtaking beauty of the surrounding landscape, and you’ve got the recipe for the perfect small-town experience.
“Quality of life” is a major focus of the St. Joe government, and you won’t have any trouble understanding that when you see what this town has to offer. Every part of it from the painstakingly preserved local landmarks to the sheer number of events that fill the calendar suggests that this is a community where the residents feel a lot of well-deserved pride. Our realtors would love to show you what they’re so proud of.

St. Joe is named after the Saint Joseph River, which you can find meandering its way through the southern border of the town. The river is one of several charming features you’ll find when looking at homes for sale in St. Joe. The town is an older community, dating back more than a hundred years. This is evident to anyone who has seen the gorgeous and classic homes that line the streets.
For such an attractive community, the home prices are surprisingly modest. Very affordable options can be found in and around town including some that sit right on the main streets. Of course, if you’re looking for something a little grander in scale, it’s not going to be hard to find those options either. There are homes beside or beyond the city borders that feature sprawling acreage and stately houses in both classic and modern styles.
This tiny town may be far out of the reach of the noise and bustle you can expect in larger communities, but it’s still quite close to everything you want to do. This town is surrounded by many other fine ones including Spencerville, Cedar Shores and the major regional hub of Fort Wayne. Our realtors can help you find a home near to the places you want to be.

There aren’t too many businesses in St. Joe, but there are some wonderful local institutions where residents can gather together and enjoy the company of one another. A café, pizza place, and tavern can all be found in the city. The nearby city of Spencerville has even more expanded options, and at a five-minute drive, it’s not going to take you long to get there.
For your basic shopping essentials, you’re going to want to head into nearby Hicksville, approximately 15 minutes away. Despite the name, Hicksville is quite the cosmopolitan little town, and you’ll be able to find both access to quality shopping and a pleasantly surprising mix of dining options. If that ever wasn’t enough, all you would need to do is take a slightly longer trip to the major city of Fort Wayne.

You won’t have trouble finding just about any cuisine including some that can only be found right in Fort Wayne. Our realtors can introduce you to the best dining that this region has to offer.
St. Joe has some delightful entertainment in town. Perhaps the town’s most famous event is the Annual Pickle Festival. The festival celebrates the pickle industry here in town, and the event attracts people from all over Indiana and the United States. The festival is held every year in late July and should not be missed if you’re a lover or pickles or just community fun.
Of course, there is plenty more fun to be had in the surrounding area. There are plenty of entertainment options in Auburn including parks, museums, and several water attractions and nearby golf course. At only 15 minutes away, is an easy trip for a lot to do.
The most variety of entertainment choices in the area can be found in Fort Wayne. This major city features many more parks than Auburn and also has everything you want in the way of theaters, festivals, concerts, and other events throughout the year. The local nightlife scene is also great when you’re looking for entertainment. Our realtors can tell you more about the culture and entertainment around St. Joe.
Most of the work available around St. Joe is in agriculture, particularly the strong local pickle industry. If you have agricultural or machine expertise, it shouldn’t be very difficult to find great work right in the local area. However, if you need to commute like many people in St. Joe tend to do, you will have an easy time reaching nearby towns with plenty of industry. Depending on your skills, it’s very likely that Fort Wayne will have work available for whatever you need.
