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 the "Museum Day" activities will be held outside on the lawn area.
