History

The town was platted in 1833 by Samuel Kiser.[5] It was founded as Middleton, but residents changed the name of the town to West Point.[6]

The West Point post office has been in operation since 1836.[7]

Economy

Most residents of West Point are employed outside of the main portion of the town with agriculture and businesses in Lafayette and West Lafayette. There are a number of equestrian centers and horse barns with close ties to the town. There is one restaurant Eddie Joe's Ice House. Martin's Body and Paint is an automotive repair shop located in the town. Cheesman Inc is a construction and contracting located centrally within West Point.

Religion

West Point is home to one church, West Point United Methodist. Another church was closed and converted to an antiques shop in the early 2010s.

There are several cemeteries and gravesites within the area. West Point Cemetery is the only one mainly located in the town.

Community

West Point has a growing level of community involvement, which primarily revolves around West Point Park (the former location of West Point High School, now demolished) and the West Point Volunteer Fire Department. Each year, the West Point Park hosts a charity 5 km run, and the Volunteer Fire Department puts on a community fish fry to raise funds for equipment.

Education

West Point residents are served by Tippecanoe School Corporation. The town used to have a high school (home of the West Point Cadets), which was closed due to consolidation in 1956 when Southwestern HS consolidated West Point, Shadeland, Romney, Wea & Jackson. McCutcheon High School opened in 1972.[8] High school students now report to McCutcheon High School. Elementary and middle school students report to Mintonye Elementary School and Southwestern Middle School respectively.
