Gary Land Company History Museum Website »
The Gary Land Company is Gary, Indiana's first building, built in 1906, the year of Gary's founding by executives of U.S. Steel. The Gary Historical and Cultural Society, Inc. maintains it as a museum and visitor's center for the City of Gary.
The Museum is usually open by appointment. However, during this year's "Museum Day", this historic museum is in the process of renovation, and this year's "Museum Day" activities will renew and energize community interest and support of this important project.
Museum Day 2013 will be a perfect opportunity to renew interest and support of this important Gary, Indiana Museum which has been in disrepair and in need of major renovation. We plan to host a "Support This Museum" benefit and program to begin the restoration process of this 107-year-old historic building/museum and kick it off on "Museum Day 2013".
This venue will accept your Museum Day Live! ticket on the screen of your smartphone.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
