Collins is an unincorporated community in Smith Township, Whitley County, in the U.S. state of Indiana.
Collins was platted in 1872, and was named after James Collins, a railroad official.
It is commonly referred to as a ‘ghost town’, however this is untrue; Collins just has a very low population and contains an abandoned school.
A post office was established at Collins in 1872, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1913.
