Love the smell of bacon? It’s one industrial odor that is welcome here by many of Cudahy’s residents as it is the proud home of food manufacturer Patrick Cudahy. Cudahy’s Lake Michigan shore is entirely within the boundaries of Sheridan Park and Warnimont Golf Course, consequently, this lakeside community does not have expensive homes. Packard Avenue grew to be the downtown area of Cudahy. Located immediately east of Mitchell International Airport, residents contend with noise from jets overhead. Long-time residents are more inclined to accept the sound, associating it more willingly with the place they call home – newcomers to the area, well, sometimes not so much! Home prices are well within budget for first time home buyers. About 20% of the residences are duplexes. Cudahy offers affordable home ownership in a community of stable neighborhoods.
