Terre Haute is home to an intersection with a historical marker known as the “Crossroads of America.” It marks U.S. 40, originally known as the National Road which opened the west for settlement, and U.S. 41, a major northsouth route, which were designated part of the original federal highway system in 1926. Their former intersection in Terre Haute at Wabash Avenue and Seventh Street became the “Crossroads of America.” Today, Terre Haute’s main crossroad is located at Interstate 70 and U.S. 41. It’s a site of a renovated Holiday Inn, reopened after a $9 million remodeling project. The biggest change is the attached LongHorn Steakhouse, a restaurant that seats more than 200 guests. The hotel is linked through a walkway to the restaurant and hotel guests can use their room key to return to the hotel without going outside. Not far away, LaQuinta Inn and Suites is under construction on Margaret Drive, near Cracker Barrel Old Country Store. The four-story project is estimated at $4.6 million. Heading east on I-70, Terre Haute has already seen growth in retail with Meijer near Walmart Superstore. Another new addition now under construction is Home2Suites, a four-story $9.6 million project next to Holiday Inn Express at the intersection of I-70 and Indiana 46/U.S.40. Visitors and workers have long been drawn to the community’s regional commerce hub and healthcare industry, but one unique aspect is it is home to five institutions of higher education — Indiana

State University, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Ivy Tech Community College and Harrison College. With recent student growth at Indiana State University, new apartments are under construction. Some are targeting students, others higher end tenants. The first on the construction scene are luxury loft-style apartments, slated for opening this year. The Lofts of Haute Maison is a nearly $3 million 10-unit apartment complex at 120 S. Seventh St. It is a project that refurbished the former “TWI” building, not far from the “Crosssroads of America.” It will offer two and three bedrooms with high end finishes throughout. Many will have balconies, fireplaces and two penthouses with rooftop terraces. Wisconsin-based ICAP Development is constructing a $15 million 224-bed student housing development called Highland Quarters at 627 Cherry Street, adjacent to Indiana State University’s Scott College of Business, also close to the “Crossroads of America.” The 106,000-square-foot, five-story project, also slated to open this year, will feature 60 fully furnished apartments with bed to bath parity and in-unit laundry. The ground level of the project will provide roughly 6,000 square feet of retail space, secured parking for tenants and amenity spaces that will include a full-service fitness facility, quiet and group study rooms and an entertainment lounge. Located west of Indiana State University’s campus, Indianapolis-based Annex

41 is constructing a 408-bed, $25 million apartment complex slated for completion in 2018. Located at 224 N. 3rd Street, Annex 41 will offer a mix of fully-furnished studios, 2-bedroom, 2-bath and 4-bedroom, 2-bath apartments. Also located west of ISU, close to the Wabash River, construction began this year on a $23 million conversion of the former ICON building. Core Redevelopment is turning the building into 165 loft-style, market-rate apartments. The property will be known as RiverFront Lofts. The project is targeted for completion in mid- to late-summer 2018. The ICON building is 186,000 square feet and originally constructed by American Can Co. and opened in 1931. Core Redevelopment has a second involvement in Terre Haute as it owns and converted the former Deming Hotel at Sixth and Cherry Streets, also converting it into apartments. In addition to residential development, industrial construction is slated to start this year about six miles south of Interstate 70 in the Vigo County Industrial Park. Minnesota-based Select Genetics has announced plans to created up to 100 new jobs by 2018 after constructing an 83,000-square-foot turkey hatchery in the industrial park. Select Genetics, formed through a merger of Valley of the Moon Commercial Poults (formed in 2011 by Aviagen Turkeys) and Willmar Poultry/Ag Forte, stated it will invest $22 million to establish and equip the new facility to produce young turkeys for commercial use.

Located at 3901 South 7th Street in Terre Haute, Terre Haute Regional Hospital is a 278-bed medical center with comprehensive healthcare programs. Regional is the only full-service hospital in the area accredited by The Joint Commission and has provided quality care to the Wabash Valley community for 135 years — from its beginnings as St. Anthony’s Hospital to the present day facility. In 1882, St. Anthony’s Hospital began as the only healthcare facility in the area. Together with the Sisters of St. Francis, St. Anthony’s Hospital served our community until 1975 when it was renamed Terre Haute Regional Hospital. In 1979, a modern five-story hospital complex was built on the south side of Terre Haute to replace the original building. Specialties & Services Services provided by Terre Haute Regional Hospital include the region’s only Level-II Trauma Center, Cardiovascular services, including open-heart surgery and cardiac catheterization; Oncology services, which include radiation therapy and outpatient infusion; a Labor and Delivery suite, including a Level-II neonatal intensive care unit; a 19-bed inpatient Behavioral Health unit; and other specialized inpatient areas, including an Intensive Care unit and an Inpatient Rehabilitation unit. In addition, Regional offers 9 fully-equipped operating suites and 4 endoscopy suites for surgical specialties including neurosurgery, orthopedics, cardiovascular surgery, general surgery, urology, and gastroenterology. In 2004, Terre Haute Regional Hospital completed the final phase of a $40 million new construction and renovation project that featured the construction of a two-story tower to house the ER and ICU. Other additions included the expansion of the Imaging Department into a comprehensive Outpatient Services Center in June 2004. This incorporated adding a new MRI unit and two new CT scan units, new

nuclear medicine and radiology equipment and additional mammography equipment. There have been multiple cosmetic improvements throughout the facility including renovation of the main lobby. In 2010 Terre Haute Regional Hospital created a comprehensive cancer services program, the Paul Siebenmorgen Cancer Center to include services such as an infusion center, radiation services, PET/CT, oncology nurse navigator program and much more. Since that time, Regional has consistently reinvested in the community, upgrading and renovating to provide the best in patient care. Recent additions include a multi-million dollar investment in staff and infrastructure to bring a Level II Trauma Center to the Wabash Valley. In 2012, an offsite imaging center was acquired, Premier Diagnostic Imaging. Located at 135 McCalister Dr., just west of the hospital, this department of the hospital offers a convenient location for imaging needs. In 2017, the name of the facility changed to Regional Imaging and Laboratory Services, as outpatient lab services are now offered at the location to better serve patients. Community involvement is an important part of Regional’s mission. Community education classes and seminars provide opportunities for individuals to take preventative steps in their own health. The hospital plays an active role in community-wide activities that promote safety, culture, health and wellness and general welfare of area residents through sponsorships, non-profit board participation by the hospital’s leadership and participation in community programs. Terre Haute Regional Hospital is an organization dedicated to its Mission, Values and Vision and is committed to providing quality, individualized patient care to the communities we serve. Terre Haute Regional Hospital looks forward to continuing to serve its friends and neighbors and growing with the community.

62 • Guide to Terre Haute

Vibrant and exciting easily describe the community life of Terre Haute, where a variety of events happen year-round. Whether you are looking for festivals, music, arts and crafts, summer fun, farmers markets or spectator sports, the local schedule is full of things to do and see. The city hosts thousands of visitors annually. Downtown events feature a regular farmers market, music, festivals, food, races, parades and more. Located at Ninth and Cherry streets in the Clabber Girl Festival Marketplace, the weekly farmers market is open each Saturday morning. Vendors bring fresh produce as well as homemade breads and baked goods, jams, jellies and other preserves, grass-fed beef, crafts and garments. Fresh-food enthusiasts enjoy the offerings and the socializing with friends old and new. During the winter months, the vendors move indoors across the street to the Clabber Girl Museum for a monthly marketplace that features baked goods, crafts and more. Food, culture and music is also featured at the festival marketplace for other community events throughout the summer. 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. Also in September, Terre Haute’s German Oberlander Club presents 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 and more! The annual Banks of the Wabash Festival at Fairbanks Park draws many people to the Wabash River in late May and early June, while the annual Fourth of July celebration features fireworks lighting up the riverbanks. Strawberries, ice cream and whipped cream are a June 8 hit just a few blocks away on Ohio Street near Sixth Street. The annual Strawberry Festival at First Congregational Church has become a hugely popular event with tents and seating set up to accommodate 10,000 visitors. Most visitors try The Works — a fresh biscuit topped with ice cream and covered in strawberries and juice. Whipped cream completes the dish,

which is especially tasty on a hot, sunny day! Just three blocks down along Ninth Street, the St. Benedict’s Community Festival comes alive July 7-8 for its 19th season. Activities during the festival hours of 5 p.m. to midnight include family games, casino games, food booths, a beer garden, a handmade quilt raffle, 50/50 raffle and a silent auction. Musical entertainment will be provided. On Sept. 8-9, the Blues at the Crossroads music festival will feature an impressive lineup of performers. Bring your lawn chairs for extra seating or feel free to wander downtown among the food vendors and shops that stay open during the evening and night-time event. A stage is set up at the Crossroads of American, the intersection of Seventh Street and Wabash Avenue, and a second stage is located nearby inside the Verve nightclub. 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. 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 the second annual “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. 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 the city’s east side is a visual treat where nonprofit organiza-

tions present creative holiday-themed shelters that feature pop culture icons such as Star Wars, Peanuts cartoons, snowmen, gingerbread people, and movie characters. If athletic endeavors are for you, Terre Haute hosts a variety of events for both spectators and participants. 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 throughout the season at Rea Park, the Terre Haute Country Club, Hulman Links, Idle Creek, & Marks Par 3. If baseball is your game, the Terre Haute REX begin their season May 28, playing home games at the Sycamore baseball complex near the Wabash River. For runners, the Lavern Gibson Championship Course features more than a dozen competitions on its hilly and challenging course throughout the summer into November, In the past, those have included the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I National championships, the Indiana High School Athletic Association and Nike races. 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. With plenty of things to see and do, Terre Haute enjoys a vibrant community life that is welcoming to all.

What does the word Terre Haute mean? Terre Haute translated from French to English means “high ground”. How is Terre Haute pronounced and what is the population size? (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 has a population of 170,943. The city is the county seat of Vigo County and the self-proclaimed capital of the Wabash Valley. What’s so cool about the Wabash River? The official state river, the Wabash is one of the longest undammed bodies of water in North America. Native Americans who first occupied its banks had called the river the Waapaahsiki which meant “pure white.” When the French arrived they interpreted the word as “Quabache’ and eventually settlers anglicized the word by spelling it “Wabash.” French explorers, missionaries and fur traders were the first white folks to arrive on the scene, and they used the Wabash as a great trade route linking the lower Great Lakes and the Mississippi River. On February 22, 1832 ground was broken on the Wabash and Erie Canal. The canal reached Terre Haute, by 1848. Today, the Wabash is a prime migratory route for birds and wildlife traveling throughout the northern hemisphere. Its beauty has inspired hundreds of works of art including the state’s official song, “On the Banks of the Wabash, Far Away.”

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? Our community hosts many big box stores and traditional retailers, and our downtown is vibrant with local boutiques, specialty stores and restaurants. Where can I find more information about Terre Haute? By visiting www.terrehaute.com or calling the Terre Haute Convention & Visitors Bureau 800-366-3043.
