To All Those Who Might be Interested:

There are several organizations working with the City of Gary to get the Palace Theater renovated. We have temporarily gotten the demolition order stopped to work on a stabilization and feasibility plan for the theater and the 600 -700 block of Broadway in downtown Gary. We recently in the building, and unfortunately there is not much left minus some decorative plaster here and there that the water infiltration has not knocked to the ground.

While all of this is happening we are looking to try and find the original Eberson blueprints, interior and exterior photographs from the buildings heyday. If anyone can help us locate these things, please let me know at

We really want to save this important architectural treasure and would welcome any an all support that we can get. The City of Gary is not the best bastion for historic preservation and a “save” of such importance could really turn the tide in a postivie way
