The town of Munster is named after early residents, the Monster family, from the Netherlands. In the 1850s. The railroads brought settlers into the area and carried Lake County crops and dairy product to profitable Chicago markets. At the time, the railroad depot at Maynard is the only map reference within the boundaries of the future town of Munster.
Tradition has it that the Post Office location at the Munster General Store had much to do with the eventual naming of the town. In any event, the new town was incorporated in 1907 and given the name of one of its distinguished first citizens. Rich farmlands along the north ridge on the Little Calumet River attracted the first families. Onions, beets, and cabbage were among the products farmed in the area.
