United Methodist Church
In a city that's unfortunately chock-full of abandoned buildings, Gary’s United Methodist Church is most iconic for the simple fact that its Gothic architecture is both stunning and incredibly eerie. Although it's been abandoned for roughly 40 years, the church has somehow escaped demolition. In 2005, Gary’s city planning director proposed a plan to rehab the space, financed primarily by the sale of limestone and decorative fixtures of one of the buildings, which was set to be demolished. Unfortunately, by the time city workers got around to stripping the building, looters had beat them to it.
