The Story of Terre Haute, Indiana, is a story of the American experience. A one-time boomtown that flourished during the nation’s Westward expansion and gained national standing during the Industrial Age, Terre Haute today is a typical Midwestern city whose star has long since faded as the city has struggled to keep up with changing times. At one time a “Crossroads of America”, the city lost that significance with the advent of the interstate road system. A blue-collar community and a college town, Terre Haute has survived bouts of political corruption, labor unrest, and hard-hitting economic setbacks, and remains resilient. Experience this community as you’ve never seen it before, get a glimpse of its storied past, take a clear-eyed look at the city today, and cast an eye toward what the future may hold in store for this community on the Banks of the Wabash.
