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.

We are proud to announce that our Ruins Garden proposal was selected as a winning idea for the 2017 #knightcities Challenge! knightfdn chose 33 winners out of over 4,500 proposals. This is a dream come true for fans of City Methodist, who for years have wondered what the fate of the church will be. Stay tuned as we'll be announcing the dates and times of our preliminary Community Conversations, where we will engage the public about the form and function of the project. This project will not happen overnight, and there are many obstacles to overcome. But, for now, we're still celebrating this incredible breakthrough for downtown redevelopment. The Knight Cities Challenge seeks ideas that help make cities more vibrant places to live and work, focusing on three drivers of city success: keeping and attracting talent, expanding opportunity and creating a culture of civic engagement. . . . . #TheMiracleCity #garyindiana #garyin #knightcitieschallenge #ig_chicagoland #redevelopment #ruins #citymethodist #adaptivereuse #savingsacredspaces #historicpreservation #sacredplace #thisplacematters #deserve2preserve #exploreindiana #gothicarchitecture #lostplaces #urbex #churchruins #beautyindecay #savingplaces #gothic #tudorrevival #vacantnotblighted #chasing_facades #rustbelt #oldarchitecture

(2/3) Exterior of the U.S. Post Office (2017). The building also housed other federal agencies and military offices, but when the city moved its post office to another location in the 1970s, this Art Deco structure lost its function. It’s abandoned, but it was built so well that it is not in danger of collapse like some of our other historic buildings. . . . #garyindiana #nwi #savingsacredspaces #chiarchitecture #chitecture #chicagoland #ig_chicagoland #oldarchitecture #midwestmoment #hoosiergrammers #igersindiana #exploreindiana #indiana #curbed #instahistory #artdeco #artdecoarchitecture #1930s #urbex #lostplaces #savethedecay #decay #beautyindecay #historicpreservation #thisplacematters #savingplaces #oldbuilding #themiraclecity

(3/4) (2017) Richard Millard, Seaman’s replacement, couldn’t muster the same enthusiasm as his predecessor; Seaman’s detractors even called for his reinstatement, but to no avail. More problems arose when steep maintenance costs forced the church to slash funding for otherwise effective social programs. Meanwhile, the church lost its allure as a recreational hub, as card games, smoking, and swearing were prohibited, and Gary’s proximity to Chicago further detracted from the church’s capacity as an entertainment space. Church coffers were weakened by the Great Depression, while suburbanization drew congregants away from City Church. Despite a religious revival in the 1950s, City Church never recovered. By the early 1970s, the congregation had shrunk to around 300, only a third of which attended regularly. When faced the choice of closing its doors or joining forces with an African American congregation, church leaders chose the former. On October 5, 1975, Gary’s longest-surviving Protestant congregation folded. #savingsacredspaces #garyindiana #nwindiana #southshore #calumet #chicagoland #steeltown #indianahistory #historicpreservation #citymethodist #sacredplace #thisplacematters #deserve2preserve #hoosiergrammers #exploreindiana #midwestexplorers #rustbelt #gothic #gothicarchitecture #builthistory #architecture #igersindiana #midwestexplorers #lostplaces #urbex #decay #churchruins #urbandecay #beautyindecay #deserted #themiraclecity #thisplacematters

This #SpanishEclectic beauty is the Mahencha Apartments building, part of the West Fifth Avenue Apartments #HistoricDistrict . Built in 1925, the 31-unit apartment was commissioned by the Gary Land Company, which envisioned Fifth Ave to be a wide boulevard replete with diverse revival architecture styles that would provide a grand entry to downtown. Not much is known about the Mahencha. Ownership has changed hands over the years between different trusts and CDCs. Mayor Hatcher once owned it, and reportedly neglected to pay taxes on the site. Sadly, rehabilitation will cost millions of dollars, leaving the structure in a state of purgatory, a fight for its life against the elements. #garyindiana #savingsacredspaces #nwindiana #deserve2preserve #abandonedarchitecture #forgottenplaces #ruins #abandoned #historicpreservation #indianahistory #igersindiana #thisplacematters #exploreindiana #hoosiergrammers #midwestexplorers #streetview #detalhes_em_foco #archidaily #archidesign #apartment #chasing_facades #urbex #ue #beautyindecay #vintageindiana #themiraclecity
