Chase is an unincorporated community in Grant Township, Benton County, in the U.S. state of Indiana. Though virtually extinct, Chase still persists on state and county maps and retains a single business in the form of grain elevators operated by Boswell Chase Grain, Inc. A few miles away is the Daughtery Motor Speedway.


A post office was established at Chase in 1873, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1918. The community was named for Simon P. Chase.


Chase is located at 40°31′08″N 87°20′30″W / 40.51889°N 87.34167°W / 40.51889; -87.34167 in Grant Township, and sits on a low rise surrounded on the north, south and west by Mud Pine Creek. Indiana State Road 352 and the Kankakee, Beaverville and Southern Railroad both go west through the town.
