“Keep Dayton Small” 

The yard signs blanketing our Town of Dayton, Indiana send a powerful message to all who pass. They express our love and appreciation for small town life away from the heavier traffic, crime, hustle and bustle of nearby areas. They say we oppose the profit-centered development that’s more appropriate for Lafayette than our small town. Most of all, they say we welcome growth, but let’s grow only in a way to enhance and complement our town. The movement is going strong. Let us know if you want a sign for your own yard.

Who are we? We are a network of residents of the Town of Dayton and the extended Dayton community. Some of us grew up in Dayton, and have lived here our entire lives. Some of us moved here years ago, and some moved here this year. Some live nearby and come to Dayton for school, work, or shopping and restaurants. Some just have a heart for small towns. Some have signs in their yards, and some do not. We all share the same goals, though: Keep Dayton Small, to Keep Dayton Friendly, and to Keep Dayton Dayton.


We are a nonprofit organization, incorporated in the State of Indiana, and a 501(C)(4) nonprofit with the IRS. Donations are NOT tax deductible.



We can’t wait for the Red Bird Cafe to open its doors in 2018!
