Save Marktown!

Historic Marktown, a unique industrial village in East Chicago, Indiana, is facing the imminent threat of demolition by the ever-expanding BP refinery. Built in 1917, the community plan resembles a small English village, but homes were intended for workers from the surrounding steel mills. It is an utterly unique development, and residents are organizing to try to block demolition. Anyone so inclined is invited to join them at the East Chicago City Council on Monday, April 28, 2014 (Facebook event).
