MECCA Building, formerly the Gary Theater (J.J. Verplank, 1913). The Marx Brothers performed The Cinderella Girls here. In 1965, it was renovated to its current design.

Unforgettable weekend at the Gary-Chester Exchange. To meet and witness a handful of #ChesterMade artists acquiring property and revitalizing downtown was truly inspirational. Many thanks to Illinois Humanities and the Pennsylvania Humanities Council for sponsoring the event, and thanks to the amazing people of Chester who fed us and taught us so much about how to reuse space and keep wealth in the community.

On November 7, 1967, Richard Gordon Hatcher was elected mayor of Gary. Hatcher, along with Carl Stokes of Cleveland, was the first African-American mayor elected in a major US city. Hatcher enjoyed a meteoric rise, from a prosecutor in cases of police brutality, to a councilman, where he helped pass open housing legislation in the city. The mayoral election of 1967 was bitter and controversial, to say the least. At the time, Gary's population was evenly split between black and white. After Hatcher won the primary, the Democratic party refused to support him, backing instead the Republican candidate. Newspapers insinuated that he was a Kremlin agent, while the Department of Justice intervened after incidents of voter fraud. Nevertheless, Richard Hatcher won the popular vote by some 2,000 votes. Meanwhile, the exiting administration refused to provide a transition of power, even chaining shut the doors to city hall when Hatcher took office on January 1st. Despite ceaseless pushback and discrimination, Mayor Hatcher curbed police brutality and hired African Americans to leading roles in City Hall. In his first 12 ears in office, Hatcher secured $300 million dollars of federal funding. To this day, he is the longest serving mayor in the city of Gary. . . . . #TheMiracleCity #GaryIndiana #garyin #ig_chicagoland #blackhistory #civilrights #segregation #sharethefacts #knowthefacts #ushistory #americanhistory #indianahistory #savediverseplaces #1967 #1960s #steelcity #vintagephoto #oldphoto #blackandwhitephoto #rustbelt #grayscale #instahistory

When people ask us, Does Gary have a future? We respond by asking, Where else can you find a national park and a lakefront less than an hour from a major metropolitan city? . . . . #TheMiracleCity #garyindiana #garyin #ig_chicagoland #indianadunes #lakemichigan #lakeshore #southshore #millerbeach #midwestmoment #midwestexplorers #seemycity #myindiana #igersindiana #hoosiergrammers #greatlakes #indiana #midwestisbest #rustbelt #exploreindiana #steelcity #puremidwest #knowthetruth

Awesome watercolor rendering of the City Church Ruins Garden concept by baileyedwarddesign in Chicago. The Gary Redevelopment Commission recently contracted Bailey Edward to execute an architectural/engineering study on the church, part of the #knightcitieschallenge . . . . #TheMiracleCity #garyindiana #garyin #ig_chicagoland #chicagoarchitecture #chiarchitecture #artofchi #art_chitecture #ig_architecture #design #architecture #watercolor #ruins #knightcities #adaptivereuse #historicpreservation #thisplacematters #deserve2preserve #savingplaces #gothicarchitecture #tudorrevival #tudortuesday #citymethodist #churchruins #beautyindecay #vacantnotblighted #oldarchitecture

Saturday was amazing! 30 people from Gary, Chicago, and beyond (as far away as England!) braved the heat to beautify the General Services Building. Unfortunately, someone found the time to dump their furniture on our site, even though there's a dumpster right around the corner(!!!). We're not fazed, though. It'll be gone before you know it. Thanks again to the Heat Light Water Project, the Calumet Artist Residency, and everyone who pitched in. Stay tuned for our next event! ✌️️ . . . . #TheMiracleCity #GaryIndiana #garyin #nwi #ig_chicagoland #savingplaces #thisplacematters #deserve2preserve #rustbelt #historicpreservation #preservation #midwestmoment #exploreindiana #chasing_facades #oldarchitecture #brickisbeautiful #boardup #vacantnotblighted #lostplaces #savethedecay #ipulledoverforthis #knightcities #placemaking #urbanart #ig_abandoned #prairieschool #ivywall #progress
