News from Gary, Indiana

City Methodist Church in Gary, Indiana faces the threat of demolition. The imposing Gothic church, built in 1925 through the aid of US Steel founder and congregation member Elbart Gary, faces demolition for a parking lot.

We'll keep you updated as this story develops. There is still hope to save the main sanctuary building, and we will be doing all we can to help Gary save the building.

It will be a sad day to see City Methodist Church face the wrecking ball.

I remember seeing Valparaiso University's Demotte Hall's demolition in 1996. That was another sad day for one of the buildings that was around at the beginnings of the university.

Deliberate Chaos

I'm sure the National Trust for Historic Preservation will be there - rationalizing how a parking lot will help some other building. What a same.
