Whiting was established in 1889 when Standard Oil Company picked the burgeoning settlement as the site of its new oil refinery. Located next to Lake Michigan, Whiting provided access to both rail and water. Standard Oil acted as an economic catalyst, and Whiting grew exponentially with the increase in work. To this day the refinery, now operating under BP, still dominates the industrial landscape of the town. New residents are frequently drawn to the town by jobs at Whiting Refinery, the Midwest’s largest oil refinery. The town has also come to be known for its great location, friendly atmosphere, and various opportunities for recreation and entertainment. The Whiting Pierogi Festival, for example, is nationally renowned and attracts nearly 200,000 visitors every year.
