An Indiana Historical Marker will be dedicated Saturday, commemorating the community of Hungarian immigrants who came to Terre Haute in the early 20th century. We'll be installing a marker for the Hungarian Immigrant Community in Terre Haute. From the late 1800s, Hungarians immigrated to the city to build a better life and flee upheaval. They established small businesses, founded a sick-benefit society & built a Hall to preserve culture pic.twitter.com/ATXDEtiDcN — Indiana Historical Bureau (@in_bureau) October 12, 2022 The ceremony begins at noon Saturday at the corner of 24th Street and Maple Avenue in Terre Haute.
