TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — A new exhibit in the Vigo County Historic Center will provide residents with a closer look at Terre Haute’s previous label as a Sin City.
The new exhibit highlights the Red Light District designated on the West side of Terre Haute.
To celebrate the museum’s new addition, Historian and Author Tim Crumrin made an appearance for a book signing.
Crumin has written multiple books highlighting the history of Vigo County.
The exhibit was inspired by his upcoming book Terre Haute’s Notorious Red Light District.
“Terre Haute has an interesting history and were always glad to tell that story. Not all of it is good. Some of Terre Haute’s history is a bad history,” Curator Suzy Quick said. “
Its about crime and corruption and prostitution, but we want to tell all of the story of Terre Haute.”
The book is expected to release toward the end of February. More information can be found on their website.
