The Village of Colon is located in the eastern half of St. Joseph County. We are a little less than two square miles in area and have close to 1,200 residents.
We are proudly known as the “Magic Capitol of the World” and have a rich history of magic. The Great Blackstone (Harry Blackstone Sr.) made his home in Colon and is buried here.
We are surrounded by water, with Sturgeon and Palmer Lakes and Swan Creek within the Village limits offering numerous recreational opportunities. During the warm weather months our population swells with cottage residents.
We host a two week long Magic Festival each summer that draws magicians and fans of magic from around the world.
Do to MDHHS updates, the Village Office will be closed to the public. However, we ask that you use the drop box, Sturgis Bank and Trust (Colon Location), mail or pay on line to limit contact. Thank You.
The February 9, 2021 Village Council Meeting will be via Zoom beginning at 7 pm. A budget workshop will be conducted via the same Zoom meeting at 6 pm. Please see links below for more information.
