East Gary is the former name of Lake Station.  The city was known as Lake Station from as far back as 1852 when it served as a depot on Michigan Central Railroad's Detroit to Chicago line.  The name was officially changed to East Gary in 1908 in an attempt to lure executives from the nearby US Steel plant in Gary, Indiana into creating a suburban community.  With another name change in 1977, the city reverted to its more historical designation of Lake Station.

Lake Station plays host to some events such as the Fuzz Follies, which is a car show that takes place in Riverview Park every year. The newest event is Septemberfest, which is held around Labor Day weekend.
