Welcome to Terre Haute!
Come explore our historic city along the banks of the scenic Wabash River. Here are a few ideas, just to get you started. • TRAILS — Walkers, runners and outdoor enthusiasts are sure to enjoy a trek along the Heritage Trail or a leisurely stroll through one of our many scenic parks, featuring state-of-the-art playgrounds, ample pavilions and pathways through nature. Turn to page 52. • CULTURE — The Arts Corridor along Seventh Street showcases unique sculptures created by some of the most celebrated artists in the country. A walk along the corridor wouldn’t be complete without stopping in to see the exhibits on display at the renowned Swope Art Museum or visiting one of the many art galleries that dot the downtown landscape. See page 32. • FUN — Children and families will enjoy a visit to the Terre Haute Children’s Museum, where hands-on learning activities, areas for creative play and more await youngsters and the young at heart. Turn to page 47. • SHOPPING — Selection … bargains … so many options! Honey Creek Mall on the city’s south side is home to many preferred clothiers, and just outside its entrance, leading retailers can be found up and down U.S. Highway 41. Downtown Terre Haute is home to specialty boutiques with one-of-kind items for unique gift-giving — including for yourself! Stein Mart anchors The Meadows on Terre Haute’s near east side, and shoppers can drive a bit farther east

to Sycamore Plaza, host to popular retailers Maurice’s, Game Stop, a Super Walmart and more. A newly built Meijer store, expected to open sometime this summer, is taking shape across from the plaza. You’re sure to find something you like! See page 45. • DINING — All of that activity is bound to make a body hungry, and what’s on the menu at local restaurants can please just about any appetite. From locally grown and grilled to continental fare and tried-and-true favorites, we’ve got your tastes covered. Turn to page 14. • SPORTS —Terre Haute is a sports fan’s dream! A new track-andfield facility for Indiana State University debuted this spring on the city’s west side, where just a bit farther north Bob Warn Field sees ISU baseball action along with REX Prospect League games. We’re also home to Hulman Center, where ISU basket-
ball teams sport their Sycamore blue. Other college sports facilities include the Sports and Recreation Center at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology and Jeanne Knoerle Gymnasium at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College. Also home to the Action Track racing venue and the Indiana Track & Field Museum/Cross Country Hall of Fame housed in the Terre Haute Convention and Visitors Bureau, located near Interstate 70 at 5353 E. Margaret Drive. The Terre Haute Convention and Visitors Bureau is open weekdays. Its knowledgeable staff welcomes the opportunity to help make your visit memorable.

Yes, that’s prime rib. There’s only one way to make it better. Order our Fresh-Cut Potato Fries or Dave’s Sweet Potato Chips on the side. They’re glutenfree,trans-fat free, and allergen free. OK, there’s another way to make it better. Wash it down with one of our craft beers. We also make an audacious turkey burger if you’re not into the beef thing. It’s 15% leaner than beef. Gobble one up when you get the chance!

Business By Tribune-Star Staff
A great place to raise a family. That’s what people often say about Terre Haute, but the city is so much more. The seat of Vigo County in the heart of the historic Wabash River Valley, Terre Haute is a busy retail and dining hub serving a two-state area stretching for 60 miles in all directions. Home to five colleges, including Indiana State University, Terre Haute offers post-secondary educational opportunities to thousands of students from across Indiana, the nation and worldwide. Vigo County boasts several small and large businesses, top-rated public schools and a growing airport enterprise zone. It also offers a wide variety of entertainment and recreation options, including many miles of family-friendly, paved hiking and biking trails through parks, woods, fields and urban settings. In many cases, these trails connect scenic and peaceful public parks - a true point of pride for local residents. Especially in the summer months, Terre Haute’s downtown springs to life with bustling street festivals such as the Downtown Block Party and Blues at the Crossroads. In December, the Miracle on Seventh Street brings downtown fully into the holiday season with colorful décor, themed contests, music, food and dozens of craft vendors. The downtown Clabber Girl Festival Marketplace is busy nearly year-round with weekend activities, such as the annual Altrusa Chili Cookoff, the German Oberlandler Club’s Strassenfest, the Oktoberfest and the Downtown Farmers Market staged each Saturday from June through October.
Still growing: a thriving downtown will soon add student housing opportunities for Indiana State University students. Photo courtesy of the Tribune-Star
The arts have always been strong in Terre Haute, but they have really taken off in the past decade. Thanks to Wabash Valley Art Spaces, eye-catching outdoor sculptures dot the landscape while free Saturday evening summer concerts by the Terre Haute Community Band are performed in Fairbanks Park. Terre Haute also boasts the oldest, continually running professional symphony orchestra in Indiana, an all-volunteer Community Theatre with more than 86 years of history, and the Swope Art Museum, which USA Today called one of the nation’s “10 great places to see art in smaller cities.” Whether here for business, recreation, or to find a new home, you will find a city with a wide variety of fun and exciting events to offer. Diverse opportunities draw workers As the primary metropolitan area between St. Louis, Indianapolis, Lafayette and Evansville, Terre Haute is a regional hub for employment, drawing workers from surrounding
communities and counties. In recent years, the Terre Haute International Airport, on the city’s east side, has emerged as a vital point of business investment and growth. The airport houses nearly 275,000 square feet of leased manufacturing and office space, not including aircraft storage facilities. Many different companies, including Stark Industries, which serves the aerospace and unmanned systems market, call the airport home. Meanwhile, plans are in place to add new leaseable space to the airport, including new hangers and new commercial space. Vigo County is also home to the 181st Intelligence Wing of the Indiana Air National Guard and, more recently, the 81st Troop Command of the Army National Guard. Adjacent to the airport, the military units provide long-term career and employment opportunities while making Terre Haute a vital part of U.S. national defense. Health care and construction are two segments of the national economy expected to grow significantly Guide to Terre Haute • 55
over the next decade. Fortunately, Terre Haute is heavily invested in both areas. In fact, health care and social assistance professionals comprise the largest single segment of the Vigo County workforce at 15.7 percent, with an average annual salary of $43,462 in 2012. Manufacturing employment makes up 15.2 percent of the Vigo County workforce, with about 7,500 jobs with average earnings of $49,591 per year. Meanwhile, more than 6,000 Construction of the new Casey’s General Store distribution center which will employ more that 150 and serve people work in retail, with another hundreds of Casey’s stores in several states.

First Street. Students from Vigo County’s universities are seen by their neighbors every day, whether working part-time jobs at busy Honey Creek Mall or volunteering in community service projects. Likewise, their professors mix with business leaders regularly at social functions and community commercial enterprises such as the Downtown Farmers Market. For nearly two decades, Terre Haute’s retail power has been nationally recognized. First noted in 1995 by the Survey of Buying Power as the second-best spot in America for per-capita retail sales, Vigo County continues to draw visitors and commerce from west-central Indiana and east-central Illinois. Whether traveling to take in an outdoor sculpture 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 a 7,000-plus person strong manufacturing sector, Vigo County produces an eclectic range of materials used across the globe, including plastic packaging, aluminum products, aerospace components and much more. In early 2014, Iowa-based Casey’s General Stores, a multi-state convenience store chain, selected Vigo County for only its second regional
distribution center, a facility expected to employ more than 150 people and serve hundreds of Casey’s stores in several states. Vigo County’s pro-business climate, excellent economic development leadership and central location were key factors in the company’s decision, according to Casey’s CEO Bob Myers, who was in Terre Haute to announce the big investment. Vigo County’s place as a regional

retail hub will be further cemented this year, as Michigan-based Meijer opens a new store on Terre Haute’s growing east side. The big-box retailer is expected to open for business sometime in summer 2015. Vigo County’s manufacturing community includes several Fortune 500 companies such as GE Aviation, as well as Sony DADC, ThyssenKrupp Presta, Novelis and ADVICS. Together, they provide thousands of jobs for workers all across the Wabash Valley. Many of these businesses are situated in Vigo County’s thriving industrial parks, which retain more than 7,000 acres ready for development in excellent locations, close to major highways and other key infrastructure. Utilities and other essential services are already in place for new investors. Family/business roots run deep Vigo County’s dynamic businesses work cooperatively with other segments of the community through the city’s Chamber of Commerce. Established in 1913, the Terre Haute Chamber is among the oldest Chambers in the United States and is strongly committed to creating a community that is a great place to live, work and do business. The approximately 800-member-strong Chamber has become the backbone of the business community, providing a solid foundation to grow and prosper. While the U.S. Small Business Administration estimates less than two-thirds of businesses survive the two-year mark, Vigo County boasts at least 120 companies with a full century or more of operation. Meanwhile, dozens of new businesses open each year. Visitors to Terre Haute can learn and have fun while visiting the 58 • Guide to Terre Haute

In 2013, the city’s historic Indiana Theatre - which anchors the corner of Ohio and Seventh streets, a block south of Wabash Avenue - re-emerged as a lively gathering place across from The Ohio Building, another key spot for downtown events. Today, motorists entering Terre Haute’s east side on U.S. 40 - the historic National Road, where cov-
ered wagons once rolled - encounter a clock, itself a symbol of time marching forward. Every day, volunteers, educators, students, retirees, professionals and civic leaders work together to find ways to improve this historic city on the banks of the Wabash River. Terre Haute and Vigo County are great places to raise a family, offering residents quality of life amenities in a small-city atmosphere.

Birth of the Contour Bottle Bottlers worried that a straight sided bottle wasn’t distinctive enough and that Coca‑Cola was becoming easily confused with ‘copycat’ brands. In 1915, glass man‑ ufacturers were approached by Coca-Cola to come up with a unique bottle design. Earl R. Dean working for The Root Glass Company of Terre Haute, Indiana, beat out over 30 other glass companies. With its famous contour shape, Dean’s creation gave the cola beverage a bottle so distinct it could be identified by touch in the dark.
Fun facts about the Coca-Cola Contour Bottle: • The Contour Bottle design was inspired by the curves and grooves of a cocoa bean. • Today, it’s one of the most recognized icons in the world - even in the dark. • Blues players have been known to use necks from Coca‑Cola’s Contour Bottles to play slide guitar, coining the term ‘bottleneck slide’.

COMMUNITY LIFE Well-earned monikers such as the City of Kindness and A Level Above point to a renaissance taking place in Terre Haute, where renewed emphasis is placed on quality-of-life offerings for residents and visitors, alike. Our community cares. It shows in our generosity of spirit and funds, our focus on health care and higher learning, and our open door-open hearts approach to hosting hundreds of thousands of visitors each year for everything from state and collegiate athletic competitions to business conferences. Why do visitors come back to Terre Haute again and again? No one wants to miss out on the dynamic goings-on in this city by the Wabash River! Downtown is a hub of activity, no matter the season. During the winter months, the Clabber Girl Museum hosts a once-a-month indoor farmers market, where vendors offer everything from homemade breads and rolls to jams, cookies, prime cuts of grass-fed beef, crafts and much more. Once the weather warms up, vendors head outdoors to the Clabber Girl Festival Marketplace, the site of the weekly Downtown Terre Haute Farmers Market, where fresh vegetables and fruits, seedlings and baked goods are among the many commodities offered for sale. Fresh-food enthusiasts flock to the market beginning Saturdays in June and continuing through October. Speaking of fresh food, scrumptious strawberries are at their peak of freshness and taste in early June, and the First Congregational Church knows just what to do with them. The church has been hosting its annual Strawberry Fest fundraiser for more than a quarter of century. Festival-goers gather beneath tents set up along Ohio Street near Sixth Street for the daylong festival that attracts 10,000 people to downtown Terre Haute. Firsttime visitors to the Strawberry Fest won’t want to miss out on tasting The Works — fresh biscuits piled high with berries, ice cream and whipped topping — a meal in itself!
Blues at the Crossroads is one of the favorite events for music lovers. The intersection of 7th & Wabash is where the excitement happens. Photo courtesy of the Tribune-Star
Countless other unique festivals — including Strassenfest, hosted by Terre Haute’s German Oberlandler Club each April, and the popular Clabber Girl BBQ Fest Challenge in July — can be found throughout the year at the Clabber Girl Festival Marketplace at Ninth and Cherry streets. Highly anticipated festivals staged along the river in scenic Fairbanks Park include the annual Banks of the Wabash Festival in May and the Community Band Festival in July. Farther south, the Wabash Valley Fairgrounds will host the Wabash Valley Herb Society’s 25th annual Spring Thyme Plant & Herb Faire on May 9, when more than 85 vendors will be selling herbs, perennials and annuals, and more. Summertime wouldn’t be complete without meeting friends and neighbors at the Downtown Terre Haute Block Party in August. Unique crafts, music, food and friendly competitions are among the mainstays of this event. Music fans grab their lawn chairs and head to Terre Haute each September for the two-day Blues at the Crossroads music festival, held downtown at the Crossroads of America, the intersection of
Seventh Street and Wabash Avenue. The lineup of performers set to take the outdoor main stage at this year’s festival — Sept. 11-12, 2015 — is impressive. On Friday, festival-goers will hear Henthorn & Feaster, Blind Mississippi Morris, Mike Mulligan and Steam Shovel, and Midnight Motive. Taking the stage on Saturday will be Moonshine Junction, Eric Stekel, Tweed Funk, Freekbass, Samantha Fist, and the Jeremiah Johnson Band. A secondary stage inside the nearby Verve nightclub will feature an impressive array of local talent, as well. Fall fun is just beginning! Whether you like your chili with a bit of a kick or a taste that reflects a secret special ingredient, you’re sure to find something to please your palate at the annual Altrusa Chili Cook Off. With the cool autumn air comes the Gathering of the People Powwow and Pioneer Days at Fowler Park, both educational, family friendly events, and the always popular Indiana State University Homecoming, featuring bands, floats, candy for the kids and more. As the year winds to a close, thoughts turn to the holidays. The annual Miracle on 7th Street, typically the first Friday in December, transforms downtown Terre Haute into a winter wonderland. It is a festival that has grown in scope each of its years. Miracle includes an open-air marketplace where vendors offer unique holiday gifts, music to help shoppers get into the spirit of the season, and contests galore — business owners vie to have the best storefront window display, not-for-profit organizations decorate Christmas trees, and lots of folks try their hand at decorating a gingerbread house. Christmas wouldn’t be complete without the annual Christmas in the Park shelter decorating contest. Nonprofits adorn the shelters at Deming Park with holiday-themed décor, and those displays provide a guiding light for visitors. Follow the light to Terre Haute — you won’t be disappointed!

Public School Corporation Founding Year: 1961 Enrollment Number (Fall 2013): 15,371 Number of Employees: 1,971 The school corporation had a remarkable year of academic progress. The Superintendent, School Board, principals, teachers, and other staff members, and of course students and parents should take pride in these accomplishments. In all elementary grades tested, in both English/language arts and math, VCSC students had the highest performance among the top ten urban schools. In the middle grades tested, VCSC students were the top three spots at every grade level in English/language arts and math among the top ten urban schools.

School, Terre Haute South Vigo High School, and West Vigo High School. The Vigo County School Corporation has a district graduation rate of 93.4% which is above the state average for five years in a row as well as a five-year trend of improvement. The corporation ACT composite score equaled or exceeded the state of Indiana composite score for the eighth year in a row. The district score met or exceeded the state average on all ACT tests of reading, mathematics, English, and science. An example of individual student excellence (and Joseph Botros at Terre Haute South Vigo) includes the comment by Governor Daniels “Got to be the premiere high school in the state for that (science) and we know that now. I have given eight of these awards, four in math and four in science, and Terre Haute South has hogged up five of them, so it is pretty much a dynasty...” The District is fortunate to have a strong program in Career and Technical Education. All Vigo County students have the opportunity to experience Business Education, Family and Consumer Sciences Education, Engineering/Technology Education, and Exploring College and Careers during their middle school career. This helps them explore the 26 different career pathways options offered at the high school level while
re-enforcing employability skills. An emphasis on dual college credits and industry certification is placed on the College and Career Pathway at the high level as students are prepared for high-skill, high-wage, high-demand careers.

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.
