Marktown, Indiana

Heroes Ride to Marktown Indiana

Designed by Howard Van Doren Shaw in 1917 for the Mark Manufacturing Company. 23 miles from the heart of Chicago. Heroes find cars parked on the sidewalks and children walking the streets on a Sunday afternoon. Surrounded by steel works and oil refineries. Some houses are empty but many are full of life and family. Three cheers to this small worker’s community standing for the next 100 years.
