WTIU's new documentary, Our Town: Terre Haute, tells the story of Terre Haute, Indiana, from its origins as a trading post on the banks of the Wabash River in the early 1800s to today’s modern, thriving city with a fast-developing Riverscape Project.

Our Town: Terre Haute

We talk with John Winninger, producer of the new WTIU documentary Our Town: Terre Haute. Mayor Duke Bennett joins the conversation to discuss what the project means to the people of the city.

Saratoga Restaurant VIPs

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College Equine Studies Program

The Mary Hulman George School of Equine Studies is the only college equine program in Indiana and one of only twenty in the United States to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in Equine Studies. For these students, college is literally as challenging as taming a wild mustang.

Inland Aquatics

Perhaps one of the most fascinating sites in Terre Haute is Inland Aquatics. With tens of thousands of gallons of tanks and aquatic environments, Inland Aquatics supplies hobbyists with salt water fish, invertebrates and living coral.
