Review of Terre Haute, Indiana

Terre Haute...
Star Rating - 2/1/2006
I grew up in Terre Haute... I graduated from Indiana State University which is a nice college. Along with Rose Hulman and St. Marys... but you have to move away to find a descent job. The town has not grown industrially and has become a sevice intersection at highway 70 and SR 41. Alcola, Stan Steel and NCR used to be located there and the only large manufactures are CBS and Lilly. I wish that the city officails would work on getting some real manufactures to locate there but Terre Haute just doesn't have any draw for large business including: night life, family-oriented festivals, nice restaurants or sport teams to attract new business. It has a Wal-mart, Super K-mart, Honey Creek Shopping Mall, several Krogers grocery stores and a very small airport with no flight service to other towns. There is just no upward movement, if anything things have went backwards for growth in Terrible Haute.
