The Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife Area, an Indiana Department of Natural Resources Division of Fish and Wildlife managed property, contributes to the public lands available to the citizens and visitors of the Wabash Valley. The area serves as part of the Healthy Rivers INitiative (HRI). HRI is Indiana’s largest land conservation initiative. It includes a partnership of resource agencies and organizations who are working with willing landowners to permanently protect over 43,000 acres located in the floodplain of the Wabash River and Sugar Creek and over 26,000 acres of the Muscatatuck River bottomlands. Dewey Point, a Vigo County Parks and Recreation Department managed property named for Susie Dewey, is located at 110 E. National Avenue in West Terre Haute, IN and serves as the primary trailhead and access point to the Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife Area and the Wabashiki Trail. Dewey Point currently offers parking, viewfinders, restrooms, and a shelter with plans to construct a canoe/kayak launch, and install interpretive signage. The Wabashiki Trail, situated on top of a US Army Corps of Engineers levee and an agricultural levee, currently includes five miles of multi-modal trails that take the user through different scenic areas as well as along the Wabash River. While at the Wabashiki Fish and Wildlife Area, visitors can enjoy hiking, biking, bird watching, fishing, hunting, canoeing/kayaking, native gardens, and many public recreational programs offered through the Vigo County Parks and Recreation Department.

Tickets prior to May 31 at $10, but are just $15 until the date of the event, when at the gate price is $20. Tickets can be purchased atwww.terrehauteairshow. com Explore three stories of fun, laughter and exploration at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum in the heart of the city’s downtown at 727 Wabash Ave. There’s also the majestic Swope Art Museum, 25 S. 7th St., known for its extraordinary collection of nearly 2,500 works of American art including paintings, sculptures, and works on paper from the 19th century to the present. The major strength of collection is American Scene Painting of the 1930s and 1940s, with work by artists such as Thomas Hart Benton, Charles Burchfield, John Steuart Curry, Edward Hopper, Reginald Marsh, and Grant Wood. There’s also the Terre Haute Symphony Orchestra. Formed in 1926, the city’s symphony orchestra is the longest-standing professional orchestra in the state of Indiana. Visit to view upcoming events and concerts. Food, culture and music is also featured throughout the year. Terre Haute is home to WaterTower Estates, a new family-run winery at 525 W. Springhill Drive and features a boutique with unique gifts. There’s also The Sycamore Winery, also a new family-operated winery located at 1320 Durkees Ferry Rd, West Terre Haute. It features a tasting room and event center that sits on a beautiful 60-acre estate with walking trails and scenic lake views near Terre Haute. For beer lovers, there is the Terre Haute Brewing Co., 401 S 9th St., near Terre Haute’s downtown, has a long history as being one of the original nine commercial breweries in the U.S. and the second oldest. The original historic building and company name was founded in 1837. It features a large tap room with a new bar and elevated seating area. There’s even a larger event area, complete with a second bar, for special events and music. The Terre Haute Farmers Market summer season starts May 19 and is relocated to The Meadows shopping center parking lot off of Poplar Street. The market is held every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon. Vendors bring fresh produce as well as homemade breads and baked goods, jams, jellies as well as grass-fed

beef, crafts and garments. The winter market season is held on the first Saturday of each month, from November to May. It is held inside The Meadows center, 2800 Poplar St., in front of Stein Mart. The annual Banks of the Wabash River Festival at Fairbanks Park draws many people to the park next to the state’s largest river in late May and early June, while the annual Fourth of July celebration features fireworks lighting up the riverbanks. Strawberries, ice cream, biscuits and whipped cream are a June hit just a few blocks away on Ohio Street near Sixth Street during the annual Strawberry Festival at First Congregational Church, with tents and seating. Most visitors try “The Works” - a fresh biscuit topped with ice cream and covered in strawberries and juice, topped with whipped cream, which is especially tasty on a hot, sunny day. Just three blocks down along Ninth Street, the St. Benedict’s Community Festival in early July offers family games, casino games, food booths, a beer garden, raffle and silent auction, as well as musical entertainment. The event raises money for local charitable work, like the parish’s soup kitchen. In September, treat your taste buds at the Altrusa Chili Cook Off in September, where dozens of competitors prepare and share their chili recipes in exchange for votes while raising money to support literacy programs. It is held at the Clabber Girl Festival Marketplace at Ninth and Cherry Streets in downtown Terre Haute. Additionally in September is the Terre Haute German Oberlander Club which hosts Oktoberfest at the marketplace. The three-day event features polka music and dancing - lots of dancing - as well as traditional German costumes and a menu of schnitzels, brats, sauerkraut, kartoffelsalat (authentic German potato salad) and more! For entertainment, September 14-15 will bring the Blues at the Crossroads music festival to Terre Haute’s downtown, with the corner of 7th Street and Wabash Avenue closed to traffic. That intersection, designated in a state marker, is considered the “Crossroad of America,” where U.S. 40, the former “National Road” - which opened the west for settlement - and U.S. 41 - a major north-south route - were designated as part of the original federal highway system in 1926. The two-day Blues at the Crossroads features a large stage, so bring your lawn chairs for extra seating and feel free to wander downtown among food vendors and shops that stay open during the event. Another stage is located nearby inside The Verve nightclub, whose owner started and organizes the annual music festival. The festival is open Sept. 15 from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. and Sept. 15 from 3 p.m. to 2 a.m. October includes the Indiana State University homecoming parade stretching through downtown on Wabash Avenue featuring colorful floats, boisterous bands, candy for children and celebratory fanfare in advance of the afternoon football

game across town at Memorial Stadium, near the intersection of Wabash and Brown avenues. A variety of food and beverage vendors and sometimes impromptu gatherings line the street all the way to the stadium, where a tent city of hospitality also awaits. The Miracle on 7th Street, which includes a “Light Your Way” Christmas Parade sponsored by Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, is another popular downtown event set for the first Friday and Saturday in December. This year marks the 10th annual Miracle on 7th Street event as a winter wonderland comes alive as Christmas trees decorated by not-for-profit organizations light up the street, storefronts compete for the best window displays and an open-air market features vendors with holiday gifts waiting to be wrapped. It’s easy to get into the holiday spirit as you mingle with other shoppers in a magical wonderland. And for holiday decorating ideas, a drive through Deming Park, on Terre Haute’s east side, is a visual treat where nonprofit groups present creative holiday-themed shelters. The groups have used themes ranging from pop culture icons such as Star Wars and Peanut cartoons to snowmen, gingerbread people and angels. If athletic endeavors are for you, Terre Haute hosts a variety of events for both participants and spectators. Motorsports are popular at the Terre Haute Action Track located at the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds on the city’s south side. Golf outings are scheduled through the season at Rea Park, the Terre Haute Country Club, Hulman Links, Idle Creek and Mark’s Par 3. If baseball is your game, the Terre Haute Rex begin their May 31. The summer league season runs through Aug. 2, with home games at Bob Warn Field, 931 N. First St. For bikers, the 300-acre Griffin Bike Park features 16-miles of trails, provides a full-spectrum, destination-riding experience for bikers of all ages, skills and abilities. The park includes challenges such as a floating trail and water ramp. The bike park is located next to Fowler Park in Vigo County, about 11 miles south of Terre Haute off of U.S. 41. Hybrids and mountain bikes are preferable; however, helmets are required. Adult supervision is required for ages 13 and under. Bring a bike light or head lamp to light the trail during evening rides. Check Griffin Bike Park’s Facebook page for updated events or call 812-462-3392.

Autumn weather also brings the annual Gathering of the People Powwow to the Vigo County Conservation Club and Pioneer Days at Fowler Park. Both events are educational, family-friendly and full of fun and cultural sharing.

General Business Information Expansion of hotel and retail stores, as well as new industry continues in Terre Haute in 2018. On Terre Haute’s east side, a new hotel and grocery are on tap. Dora Hotel Co. LLC and Gibson Development LLC are developing a new four-story Home2 Suites by Hilton. The 91room (70 standard-sized hotel rooms and 21 larger suite rooms) extended-stay hotel will be located at 2625 S. Sycamore Crossing St. Amenities will include Wi-Fi, pool and deck, fitness room, guest laundry, grilling patio and outdoor lounge. The lobby will feature an open-area floor plan known as the Oasis, designed to alternate between a breakfast area and a workspace. It will be the second hotel the two companies have developed on the east side, to be located next to the four-story, 83-room (of which 32 rooms are suites) Holiday Inn Express, which opened in 2011. The $9.66 million, 56,000-square-foot Home2Suties by Hilton, located near Walmart East just off Indiana 46/U.S. 40 and Margaret Avenue, is slated to open in September. Aldi is also underway with construction of a new 19,207-square-foot store that can hold 442 shoppers. That store is located east side of Indiana 46/U.S. 40, on the same side of the highway as Meijer, which opened in 2015. Aldi has also relocated a store on Terre Haute’s south side, at 5501 S. U.S. 41, on the site of the former Ryan’s buffet restaurant, which was demolished to make room for Aldi’s new 23,638-square-foot store to open this year with a capacity for 452 shoppers. The new stores are part of Aldi’s $3.4 billion capital investment plan to expand to 2,500 stores nationwide by the end of 2022, becoming the third-largest grocery retailer by store count in the U.S.

Menard’s is underway with a project to add a second large hardware retail store, with a new building that will be catercornered from Dixie Bee Elementary School. It is bounded by U.S. 41 South to the west, Jessica Drive to the south and Woodsmall Road to the north. The new south store, while at 181,500-square-feet, is smaller than the more than 210,000-square-foot Menards store on Terre Haute’s north side. Menard’s owns 29.64 acres and plans out lots for stores in front of the new south side store. In Terre Haute’s downtown, long-time restaurateur Pauline Cuvelier has opened a fourth venture in the city. It’s called Rice & Pasta Shop. It’s a dine-in downtown restaurant at the corner of Wabash Avenue and Sixth Street in a space that formerly housed Rollie’s Pizza. The storefront entrance to faces Sixth Street. “The concept is based on rice and pasta, but that can be topped with French, Italian and Chinese ingredients. This is a good opportunity to introduce the Indiana State University campus and Terre Haute community about eating different types of cuisine,” Cuvelier said. Cuvelier owns and operates three Royal Mandarin Express restaurants in Terre Haute, starting her first restaurant in 1984. Insomnia Cookies, 647 Cherry Street, makes it easy for students at Indiana State University to get treats late into the night. The bakery, opened late last year, offers traditional cookies, deluxe cookies, brownies, ice cream and milk every day. The business is open daily until 3 a.m., with daily delivery from 10 a.m. to 3 a.m., catering to the needs of ISU students, downtown visitors and residents. Another business new to Terre Haute’s downtown is RJL Solutions LLC., a new

bi-partisan advocacy firm led by Rachel Leslie, managing partner. Leslie previously served as executive vice president of the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce and most recently as vice president for external relations at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College. The improved national housing marking this year brought the reopening of Allura’s 438,000-square-foot fiber cement siding plant in the Vigo County Industrial Park, about 6 miles south of Terre Haute. Houston, Texas-based Allura’s customers include regional and national home builders who use the company’s fiber cement building products in the construction of new homes and the remodeling of existing homes. In October 2017, Allura signed a national agreement with KB Home to serve as the home builder’s exclusive supplier of exterior fiber cement siding products. The Terre Haute plant has the capacity to make 212,000 tons of product annually and is the company’s largest fiber cement plant in the nation. Allura has a plant in White City, Oregon, with an annual capacity of 120,000 tons; Roaring River, N.C., with an annual

capacity of 109,000 tons; and a facility in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, with an annual capacity of 75,000 tons of product. “Machine operators, material handlers, plant managers and others are back to work in this great community, and our long-lasting fiber cement siding, produced right here in Terre Haute, is making the dream of home ownership a reality for families across the Midwest,” Jessica Navascues, CEO of Allura, said in a reopening event this year. The Terre Haute facility was originally constructed by CertainTeed, a subsidiary of Saint-Gobain SA, opening in 2008. After the housing bubble and banking mortgage scandal rocked the nation, CertainTeed shut down some operations at the plant in 2012. In 2014, CertainTeed was sold to Plycem USA Inc., a subsidiary of Mexico-based Elementia. Allura is a subsidiary of Plycem USA. Terre Haute received notice of other projects, including GATX Corporation, a global railcar leasing company, which announced plans to expand its Terre Haute operations into a full-scale Midwest maintenance hub, creating up to 59 new jobs by 2020. The Chicago-based company will invest up to $38.5 million into its 104-acre location at 4400 Maple Ave. in Terre Haute, making it the company’s only full-scale service center in the Midwest and its fourth largest center in the nation. Early this year, Pyrolyx AG, one of the world’s largest producers of recovered carbon black from scrap tires, completed construction of the main building and main exterior areas of its new production plant in Terre Haute, Indiana. Pyrolyx is now working to finish interior finishes, and will begin installation of the process equipment in the coming months. Commissioning of the $25 million project is scheduled for early 2019, after which it will produce around 13,000 metric tons of carbon black annually, recycling about 4 million scrap tires in the U.S. annually. The company’s first plant was opened in 2012 in Germany.
