Terre Haute, Indiana

Terre Haute is a city in Vigo County, situated along the eastern bank of the Wabash River in western Indiana, approximately 75 miles west of Indianapolis. The city is the county seat of Vigo County and the self-proclaimed capital of the Wabash Valley. As of the 2010 census, Terre Haute had a total population of 60,785. The federal death row is in Terre Haute at the Terre Haute Federal Correctional Complex.

Terre Haute was incorporated as a town in 1832, and later, as a city in 1853. The community was initially known as an agricultural and pork-packing center and as a port on the then-navigable Wabash River for steamboats and other river-craft. After the American Civil War, Terre Haute transformed into an industrial and mining center, with iron and steel mills, and, late in the 19th century, distilleries, breweries, coal mines and coal operating companies. Prohibition had a major adverse impact on the city's economy. It forced the closure of several distilleries and all but one brewery. Four large glass manufacturing firms drastically reduced production, and two eventually closed. The Root Glass Company survived, primarily because it had secured the patent for the Coca-Cola bottle in 1915. Two of the distilleries were sold to Commercial Solvents Corporation. Once the coal mines were exhausted and the importance of the railroads diminished, Terre Haute entered a period of economic decline. In recent years, the expansion of the campus of Indiana State University, and the city’s effort to diversify its economic base have helped the city to recover. Key industry sectors in Terre Haute include life sciences, advanced manufacturing, health services, education, and agriculture.

The city of Terre Haute has a long history of manufacturing in industries known for their use of asbestos-containing products.
