9780738539881: Gary's West Side: The Horace Mann Neighborhood (IN) (Images of America)

Though Gary was an industrial city founded by U.S. Steel, the Horace Mann neighborhood evolved into one of the most exclusive residential areas in northwest Indiana. Skilled craftsmen from the mills were able to live among doctors and lawyers as well as businessmen and supervisors from U.S. Steel. From the boom years of the 1920s through the 1960s, residents of diverse economic backgrounds sent their children to the same schools, prayed together in the same houses of worship, and shopped in Gary’s popular downtown. Gary’s West Side: The Horace Mann Neighborhood is a pictorial history spanning four generations of one of the Steel City’s premier residential districts. Through archival photographs, family snapshots provided by former residents, and shared memories, the reader is taken on a nostalgic journey from the city’s founding in 1906 through to the 21st century.
