In 1915, the Coca-Cola Company sent out a challenge to glass companies across the US to design a “bottle so distinct that you would recognize it by feeling in the dark or lying broken on the ground.” The Root Glass Company in Terre Haute, Indiana created the winning design, making the city the birthplace of the iconic bottle that is recognized around the world.

THE COKE BOTTLE SCULPTURE PROJECT The 6-foot-tall Coke Bottle sculptures throughout Terre Haute exhibit the pride the community takes in its role in the development of this world-renowned packaging design. The sculpture is part of the Root Family Public Art Project. To learn more about the history of the Coca-Cola Bottle, visit the Vigo County Historical Museum.

Tourism is big business in Vigo County, bringing in about a $30 million dollars annually. Visitors to Terre Haute can go for par at several city and county golf courses, visit a world-class bicycle trail, attend music and community festivals as well as watch several spectator sporting events. Ten racing events are scheduled from April through October at the Terre Haute Action Track’s half- mile dirt track at the Vigo County Fairgrounds on U.S. 41, with the USAC National Sprint Cars, plus The World of Outlaw Sprint Cars and AMA All-Star National Flat Track Series Motorcycles. If baseball is your game, Terre Haute REX, the 2018 Prospect League Champions, are well into the 2021 season. The summer collegiate league season runs through Aug. 4 with home games at Bob Warn Field, 931 N. First Street. If you want to get into the swing of the action, golf outings are scheduled through the season at Rea Park, the Terre Haute Country Club, Hulman Links, Idle Creek and Mark’s Par 3. For bicyclers, the 300-acre Griffin Bike Park features 16 miles of trails. It provides a full-spectrum, destination-riding experience for bikers of all ages, skills and abilities. The park includes challenges such as a flowing 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. 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 out Griffin Bike Park’s Facebook page for updated events or call 812.462.3392.

There’s also the Swope Art Museum, 25 S. 7th Street, 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 the collection is American Scene Paintings 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 thstate of Indiana.

Visit to view upcoming events and concerts. Food, culture and music are also featured throughout the year. Terre Haute is home to Water Tower Estates, a family-run winery at 525 W. Springhill Drive that features a boutique with unique gifts. There’s also The Sycamore Winery, a family-operated winery located at 1320 Durkees Ferry Road, 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. For beer lovers, there is the Terre Haute Brewing Co., founded in 1837. This brewery 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, located at 401 S. 9th Street in the city’s downtown, 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.

fresh produce, homemade baked goods, jams and jellies, grass-fed beef, crafts and garments. 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. The annual Fourth of July celebration features fireworks lighting up the riverbanks. Strawberries, ice cream, biscuits and whipped cream are an early June hit just a few blocks away on Ohio Street near Sixth Street during the annual Strawberry Festival at First Congregational Church. Most visitors try “The Works” which is a fresh biscuit topped with ice cream and whipped cream — especially tasty on a hot and sunny day. On September 18-19, the Terre Haute German Oberlander Club hosts the 48th Oktoberfest at The Meadows Shopping Center. The event features polka music and dancing — lots of dancing — as well as traditional German costumes and a menu of beer, schnitzels, brats, sauerkraut, kartoffelsalat (authentic German potato salad) and more. For musical entertainment, the 17th annual Blues at the Crossroads music festival returns to Terre Haute’s downtown on September 10-11 where the corner of 7th Street and Wabash Avenue is closed

to traffic. That intersection, designated in a state marker, is considered the “Crossroad of America,” where U.S. 40, the former “National Road,” opened the west for settlement and U.S. 41, a major northsouth route, were designated as part of the original federal highway system in 1926. The two-day Blues at the Crossroads features a large outdoor stage. Bring 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 organized the annual music festival. In October, treat your taste buds at the Altrusa Chili Cook Off, where dozens of competitors prepare and share their chili recipes in exchange for votes while raising money to support literacy programs. Go to to learn more about the 2021 event. October also includes the Indiana State University homecoming parade that stretches through downtown on Wabash Avenue featuring colorful floats, boisterous bands and candy for children. The celebratory fanfare is 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 line the street all the way to the stadium, where a tent city of hospitality also awaits. Autumn weather also brings the annual People Powwow on September 25-26 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. The Miracle on 7th Street, which has included a “Light Your Way” Christmas Parade sponsored by Saint Mary-ofthe-Woods College, is another popular downtown event set for the first Friday and Saturday in December. A winter wonderland comes alive as Christmas trees decorated by notfor-profit organizations light up the street, storefronts compete for the best window displays and an openair market features vendors with holiday gifts waiting to wrap. It’s easy to get into the holiday spirit as you mingle with other shoppers in a magical The rope course at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum. wonderland. For holiday

decorating ideas, a drive through Deming Park on Terre Haute’s east side is a visual treat where nonprofit groups decorate 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. For those interested in history, Terre Haute has a lot to offer. The 34,000-square foot Vigo County History Center at 929 Wabash Avenue showcases its collections of more than 100,000 vintage artifacts and historic memorabilia, in addition to interactive exhibits and an old-fashioned Coke-themed soda fountain. Other sites include the gold-domed Vigo County Courthouse and the home of political activist/trade unionist, Eugene V. Debs, on the campus of Indiana State University. While at ISU, visit the newly renovated Hulman Center, home of the Indiana State Sycamores, where a largerthan-life bronze statue of Sycamore and NBA’s Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird stands to commemorate his college playing days in Terre Haute. It’s a popular photo op. For time in nature, the 2,600 acre Wabashiki Fish & Wildlife Area features trails through natural scenery and a lookout at Dewey Point. Terre Haute has several city parks, with its largest being Deming Park, which features a unique train ride for youngsters. Vigo County’ Fowler Park offers lake swimming, as well as camp grounds and trails. Other trails can be found at Hawthorn Park, behind Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.

COMMUNITY LIFE | Guide to Terre Haute • 61

Terre Haute’s north side, downtown, southwest and east side are changing amid new business development. The biggest developments include a downtown convention center, which marked its halfway point to completed construction in May, and a new casino, slated for construction on the city’s east side. There’s also a new outdoor music venue that seats 6,000 people with plans to accommodate 12,000 in the next few years on the city’s southwest side. As of May, more than $12 million had been spent on hard construction costs for the Terre Haute Convention Center, with more than $16.3 million remaining to be spent. Construction remains on track for a substantial completion date of April 27, 2022. The downtown project has a guaranteed maximum construction price of $34,891,153, which includes more than $4.5 million for design and professional services; more than $1.46 million for furniture and fixtures; and a contingency fund of more than $556,000. The work includes a new downtown parking garage adjacent to the convention center. A view of the project can be seen from across the street at the Terre Haute Children’s Museum, at 727 Wabash Avenue. The museum is featuring a special exhibit called UNDER CONSTRUCTION! The hands-on exhibit shows kids of all ages how buildings are built, what it takes to have a career in the trades, the skills needed to use tools and allows a bird’s-eye view of the construction site for the new convention

center. While construction continues, small businesses around the convention center are changing. Gone are the Corner Grind and Crossroads Cafe, but new businesses include Federal Coffee & Fine Foods, Scout’s Pizzeria and Bar-Botics. Combining the nostalgia of 1970s and 1980s video arcade games with alcoholic drinks is the magic of retro-themed Bar_ Botics Arcade at 671 Wabash Ave. It’s a place where old school games such as PacMan, Space Invaders, Centipede, Missile Command, Trophy Hunting and Donkey Kong return from past popular culture into the 21st century. Federal Coffee & Fine Foods, at the intersection of 7th Street and Wabash Avenue, is owned by Kris and Gretchen Kraut, who also own The Red Barn at Sycamore Farm and The Butler’s Pantry Food Co., which supplies chef-prepared meals for the coffee shop. Next door, Scout Wrin opened Scout’s Pizzeria offering wood fired pizza. He is the son of Connie Wrin, who owns The Verve, a downtown bar. She is also founder of Blues at the Crossroads, a downtown Terre Haute music festival held each year in September. On the city’s east side, a new casino is slated for Terre Haute, to be owed by Lucy Luck Gaming LLC,

headed by Terre Haute businessman Greg Gibson. Additionally, Gibson is also vice president of Spectacle Entertainment, which purchased the Majestic Star license for a new, bigger land-based casino in Gary. Lucy Luck Gaming, an entirely separate entity, in May reached a management agreement with Hard Rock International Inc., which marked a significant step toward the Terre Haute casino potentially holding a groundbreaking ceremony in late June or July, said Jon Lucas, chief operating officer for Hard Rock. “That will allow Hard Rock to develop and manage this facility for the foreseeable future,” Lucas said. “We anticipate a groundbreaking ceremony either the last week of June or the first week of July pending all approvals from the (Indiana Gaming) Commission. We would anticipate an opening in late summer, early fall of 2022.” Lucas said the casino is a $170 million project (which includes financing) with approximately 350 construction jobs and will employ over 600 workers; it will be called the Rocksino by Hard Rock. The casino will have 850 slots, 35 table games and a 250seat multipurpose room “which will provide an entertainment as well as meeting space,” Lucas said. “On the food and beverage side, we will have a small steakhouse with a bar. We will have our signature Hard Rock Cafe and center bar tied together with our sports book,” Lucas said. “We will also have a food hall with a variety of food offerings including our Constant Grind (coffee shop). We are very excited about this project and can’t wait to get started.” On the city’s southwest side, property at 2403 Prairieton Road, which once housed a paper mill, is slowly being converted into an outdoor music venue. “The Mill Terre Haute” is Centipede at Bar_Botics slated to host at least five performances this year, as twotime Grammy award-winning rap artist Nelly became the first to perform in the new venue on June 5. The venue includes a new 11,375 square foot concrete stage deck, which serves as the foundation for a rooftop system that provides a roughly 47-foot by 42-foot cover Alec Thompson and Ethan Page owners of Bar_Botics area for performing artists and supports speakers, plus two video walls on the


ground, each 10-feet by 15-feet next to the stage. The entire stage with all the frontage and the speakers is about 140 feet wide and 65 feet deep. “It is the same rooftop that is used at the Illinois State Fair,” said Tim Drake, president of Lukebo Inc. That company was formed in October 2018 by Drake, his wife, brother-inlaw Jason Lane and two other investors that own The Mill. “We are leasing that rooftop all year, but it will be taken down the beginning of August for use at the Illinois State Fair and returned around Aug. 24, so it will be back for our September and October shows.” That roof is temporary as The Mill expects to construct a steel roof structure in the future. Food trucks provide drinks and beverages during performances. In addition to Nelly, other artists slated to perform this year include Riley Green on June 17; Three Dog Night on July 4; Summerland Tour, comprised of Everclear, Hoobastank, Living Colour and Wheatus on July 16; and Lee Brice on Sept. 4. Tickets can be obtained at On Terre Haute’s north side, there is another type of development as property owners have joined together in an effort to bring new business and visitors to the historic 12 Points neighborhood, named after the four points at each of three intersections created by Lafayette Avenue, Maple Avenue and 13th Street. Most of the iconic buildings in the neighborhood were built in the early 1900s. The nonprofit Twelve Points Revitalization Inc. this spring raised more than $50,000, which will be matched by another $50,000 from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority. The funds will

The Bakers’ PARQ at 12 Points building brought in new businesses such as Sons Spice Company, formerly known as Simply Sons’ Seasoning, and Farm Fresh, which will relocate its kitchen from Brazil in Clay County, as well as Studio 12. Another new nearby business is Jitterbugs, which sells home furnishing. “We have been trying for years to get the revitalization effort focused in 12 Points and individual businesses have tried so many times to come ... but having all these businesses come in a year’s period, that will be beneficial to everyone,” said Lucy Chew, who with her husband Eric Handlin, own Studio 12. Studio 12 includes Eric’s Humble Pies, made by Handlin. “My husband has a degree in visual arts, and we have been wanting to open an art shop and coffee shop specifically in the 12 Points

The Legend of Stiffy Green John G. Heinhl died in 1920, and the story goes that his loyal pet, a bulldog, refused to leave him -- even after Heinhl was placed in the family mausoleum at Highland Lawn Cemetery. The dog snarled at all who approached, and stood sentinel until the day Heinhl’s widow found him dead on the mausoleum’s steps. The bulldog was stuffed, green glass eyes added, and placed inside the mausoleum, visible through the entrance grate. Over the decades, the Heinhl mausoleum became a favorite rendezvous for dating teenagers, who would shine flashlights through its barred doors to see the dog’s glowing eyes. They called him “Stiffy Green,” and the legend grew of the noble dog. The Terre Haute Lion’s Club, sensing a useful public service opportunity, built a full-size replica of the Heinhl mausoleum inside the County Historical Museum, and Stiffy was moved into it in 1989. He has been there ever since, safe to confuse yet another generation of Hoosiers and to grace the museum’s most popular sweatshirt.

Mayor Duke Bennett, artist Becky Hochhalter, Kelly and Jeff Ford and Jon Robeson pose for a photo with the new Stiffy Green mural on Tuesday at the intersection of Seventh and Walnut Streets.

Box 3703, Terre Haute, IN 47803 (812) 462-4011 | Public School Corporation Founding Year: 1961 Enrollment Number (Spring 2021): 13,374 Number of Employees: 2,124 Vision Statement: Working together with our community, we inspire our students to discover their talents and rise to their greatest potential. Mission Statement: Building on the strengths of our diverse community, we create an engaging, comprehensive educational environment that supports the growth of lifelong learners. The Vigo County School Corporation is one year into a new strategic plan for 20202025, titled “Team Vigo: Our Community, Collaborating for our Children.” Our strategic planning process started with our community. Through community meetings at all 28 schools and other organizations throughout the Wabash Valley, parents, teachers, and other staff participated alongside business and industry members, not-for-profit leaders, higher education representatives, and other interested citizens to contribute written and oral feedback about educational priorities. Key initiatives were identified through the large-scale community engagement process. Key initiatives within the strategic plan include: Technology: Thanks to federal CARES Act dollars and donations, the Vigo County School Corporation completed a 1:1 Chromebook initiative in the 2020-21 school year, and every student and staff member has a Chromebook for educational use. The Board of School Trustees will continue to engage teachers, staff, parents, and community

The Vigo County School Corporation will serve as a convening body to work on community issues. The Board of School Trustees will invest in strengthening current community partnerships while exploring potential new strategic alliances throughout the Wabash Valley. This investment means we will work in deep collaboration with our community and proactively coordinate efforts with other K-12 districts, higher education partners in our region, local businesses, local workforce development agencies, faith-based institutions, and not-for-profit communities.
