Keystone is an unincorporated community in Chester Township, Wells County, in the U.S. state of Indiana.[3]

History[edit]

A large share of the early settlers being natives of Pennsylvania caused the name of Keystone to be selected, after the Keystone State.[4]

A post office was established at Keystone in 1871, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1957.[5]
