Science Museums Terre Haute Children’s Museum 727 Wabash Ave. (812) 235-5548 Web site: www.thchildrensmuseum.com Email: info@terrehautechildrensmuseum.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/terrehautechildrensmuseum Since it opened its doors in 1988, the Terre Haute Childrenʼs Museum has been a fun and exciting destination for children and families, and our mission to “enrich our children's lives through the exploration of science and technology” is realized through hands-on experiences with a variety of exhibits. On Sept. 24, 2010, the Museum moved from a 3,000-square-foot building to a new 26,000square-foot facility located at the corner of 8th Street and Wabash Avenue in downtown Terre Haute, and since that time, we have welcomed more than 100,000 guests! In our new building, we are focusing our efforts on giving children exciting ways to learn about math, science, technology and health, and some of the exhibits that can be found in the new Museum include a two-story tree house, a dinosaur dig, an agriculture exhibit, a water table, health exhibits, and exhibits about airplanes and flight. At first glance, the Museum appears to just be a building filled with fun hands-on exhibits – but we are so much more than that! We are a mission-driven non-profit organization, and our exhibits are just one component of our efforts. By giving kids opportunities to dig up dinosaur bones, play the role of veterinarian, create buildings with LEGOs and blocks and play with bubbles, we are planting seeds of interest in science, technology, engineering and math. We are inspiring our nationʼs future doctors, scientists, mathematicians and engineers!

BUSINESS

By Brian M. Boyce Tribune-Star

Public and private sector partnerships merge at the Crossroads of America, where streets leading to world class universities are lined with artwork, and small businesses are interspersed between major manufacturing hubs. Vigo County’s business community exemplifies diversity with the latest census data showing 20 industrial sectors represented in employment opportunities for nearly 110,000 citizens, not to mention those in a dozen surrounding communities. If these various sectors seem an interwoven tapestry to visitors, it’s no coincidence. Partnerships between manufacturing plants and banks have long been nurtured alongside institutions such as universities, museums and health care facilities. These relationships helped lead state officials to recognize Vigo County with an "A" grade in arts, entertainment and recreation as measured by the Indiana

Community Assets Inventory and Rankings 2012 performed by Ball State University’s Center for Business and Economic Research. Whether here for business, recreation, or to close on a new home, visitors and newcomers alike will find much to do here in this comfortably bustling Midwestern hub.

A Portrait by the Numbers As the primary Metropolitan Service Area between St. Louis, Indianapolis, Lafayette and Evansville, Terre Haute serves as a regional hub for employment. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports about 18,000 workers commuting daily into Vigo County from its neighbors, part of a diversified labor pool spanning multiple categories in remarkably equal portions. Health care professionals and those in social assistance comprised the largest segment with 16.7 percent of the workforce, and an average wage-per-job of $40,293. Manufacturing employment

comprised 15 percent of the workforce with 7,539 employees and average wages between $50,000 and $60,000 per year. Meanwhile, 6,313 people work in retail, with another 4,920 in accommodation and food service. This thriving retail and restaurant scene is explained in part by the 3,300 educational jobs serving nearly 20,000 college students, who augment the population both economically and culturally. Public university campuses here include Indiana State University and Ivy Tech Community College’s Wabash Valley branch, while private institutions include nationally ranked Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and St. Mary-ofthe-Woods College, as well as Harrison College. Students from these universities are seen by their neighboring homeowners every day, whether working part-time jobs at the mall or volunteering in community service projects. Likewise, their professors mix with business leaders regularly at social functions and community Guide To Terre Haute 47


commercial enterprises as the Downtown Farmers Market. For nearly two decades, the community’s retail power has been nationally recognized. First noted in 1995 by the Survey of Buying Power as the secondbest spot in America for per-capita retail sales, Vigo County continues to draw commerce from a 60-mile radius in every direction. Whether traveling to participate in one of Arts Illiana’s outdoor sculpture presentations, or coming to earn a graduate degree in accounting, the constant flow of traffic in and out of the community adds up to substantial value for all involved.

Making More Happen Now With some 7,500 people working in the manufacturing sector, Vigo County produces an eclectic range of materials each year used across the globe. More is on the way. The New Year holiday of 2012 brought about 234 reasons to celebrate with the announcement that Californiabased pharmaceutical company NantWorks will locate in a plant formerly occupied by Pfizer Inc. just south of Terre

Haute. This $120 million investment over the next five years is expected to bring 234 new jobs to the community by 2016, filling the 211-acre property with professionals ranging from engineers and IT to marketing and production. Vigo County’s manufacturing community includes a number of Fortune 500 companies including General Electric’s Unison Engine Components and Tri-Remanufacturing, as well as Sony DADC, ThyssenKrupp Presta, Novelis and Aisin Seiki. And there’s certainly room to grow. The Terre Haute International Airport serves as a primary back-up to the Indianapolis International Airport and shares

facilities with the 181st Intelligence Wing of the Indiana Air National Guard. In addition to one of the largest runways in the state, the facility adjacent to Interstate 70, Indiana 46 and 42, also features turn-key properties from hangars to office space. Just this past year, the airport has undergone a significant transformation with the privatization of its Fixed Base Operator unit and subsequent partnership with Hoosier Aviation, LLC, which now offers an array of services to private and commercial pilots alike. Whether a business is looking for a potential logistics partner, or a professional needs quick transportation within the region, local aviators offer an alternative to commercial airlines found


in major metropolitan facilities. These offerings are in addition to the county’s industrial park which contains 400 acres ready for future development and more than 7,000 acres along the border of Vigo and Clay counties. Largely reclaimed surface mine, the property is close to the Terre Haute International Airport and runs adjacent to Interstate 70 along Indiana 42. State economic development officials have certified it a "megasite" for future industrial growth.

Still Going Strong With more than 900 members, the Terre Haute Chamber of Commerce is one of the strongest in the state. And while the U.S. Small Business Administration estimates less than 66 percent of businesses survive the two-year mark, Vigo County hosts 120 with a full century of operation. Meanwhile, more than 40 ribbons were cut by city officials for businesses opened last year. The vibrancy of Terre Haute’s downtown is palpable in street festivals such as the Downtown Block Party and Miracle on 7th Street, Blues at the Crossroads and the Downtown Farmers Market. International conglomerates, such as Hulman & Co., share space with entrepreneurs at these events, patronized by college students and the factory workers with whom they intern. Newcomers to the downtown might not recognize the resurgence, but a broad network of community activists can certainly tell the story of how Terre Haute recently built a world class children’s museum next to two new hotels, just up Wabash Avenue from renovated store fronts, surrounded by the outdoor sculptures of Arts Corridor, all connected by a

cross-community trail system. As travelers enter Terre Haute’s city limits heading west on U.S. 40, they’re greeted by a Clabber Girl sign and clock before passing Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. Founded in 1850 by Francis Hulman as a wholesale grocery store, Hulman & Co. has expanded into its third century as an international conglomerate,

although still family-owned after five generations, still in control of the famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and still making the Clabber Girl baking powder it began producing in 1899. But while here, even newcomers can see that a lot has changed since those early days, and more yet is still to come.

74 Guide To Terre Haute


What does the word Terre Haute mean? Terre Haute translated from French to English means “high ground”.

How is Terre Haute pronounced and how big is the city? (pronounced / ter’å - hot / is a city in Vigo County, Indiana near the state’s western border with Illinois. As of the 2010 census, the city had a total population of 60,785 and its metropolitan area had a population of 170,943. The city is the county seat of Vigo County and the selfproclaimed capital of the Wabash Valley.

How did the Wabash River begin? The longest man-made body of water in the western hemisphere which brought prosperity to the Wabash Valley. *The official state river. The Indians had called the river the Wah-Bah Shik-Ki which meant “pure white.” When the French arrived they corrupted the word by calling it “Quabache” and eventually, of course, the settlers anglicized the word by spelling it “Wabash.” But it was the Indians who first occupied the banks of the Wabash. French explorers, missionaries and fur traders were the first white men to arrive on the scene, and the Wabash soon became the great trade route linking the lower Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. February 22, 1832 ground was broken and construction began. The canal reached Terre Haute by 1848.

Why is downtown Terre Haute called the Crossroads of America? At about the same time, U.S. Highway 41 was commissioned between Chicago, Illinois and Miami, Florida. This north-south highway through downtown Terre Haute followed Seventh Street at the time, and met U.S. 40, which followed Wabash Avenue, the main east-west street in town. The Seventh and Wabash intersection thus became known as the “Crossroads of America,” an appellation now memorialized with a historical marker at that corner.

Where do you shop in Terre Haute? Honey Creek Mall followed by many other stores, shops and small boutiques in every area of the town.

How is Coca Cola related to Terre Haute Indiana? The original curved Coca-Cola bottle was designed and first produced by the Root Glass Company, which was based in Terre Haute. In the mid-1990s, Coca-Cola honored this part of its past by introducing a short-lived Coke bottle-shaped can that was sold only in Terre Haute and one other city.
