Terre Haute was officially founded in 1853 if I remember correctly and benefited mainly from access to the Wabash and national roads being built even prior to that. So in short, the railroad while playing a significant role in its development was hardly here first. Also, the majority of my posts come from my phone, and while far from perfect, do come off as the ramblings of a person with a third grade grasp on the English language.

thought we was talking about the industrial village being the reason the railroads was here? I was just proving my point. The railroad was here to move people. Then having access to the rail industry's built around them. It's funny how something as simple as trying to explain why the flow of traffic in this town sucks and it not being the railroads fault turns into such a big deal. I'm not out to "argue" "fight" or bring anybody down. The first stone was saying I'm uneducated and have no facts. I deal with the facts of this problem each and everyday.

You made the claim that the railroad was here first, it wasn't, and you got called out on it.

From the wikipedia entry on Chauncy Rose:

Rose was educated in the common schools of his Connecticut district, and at the age of 23 headed west to the states of Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama to find a suitable place to enter into business. He decided upon western Indiana and settled in Rosedale, then known as Dotyville, in Parke County in 1819, where he first turned his attention to milling, building his first mill in Coxville just outside Rosedale. As his revenue grew, Rose expanded into other investment realms in nearby Terre Haute in Vigo County, which was developing into the commerce center of the region.

You are one retarded bitch. If you can manage to work a keyboard all you have to do is research Terre Haute's history and you will find out the beginnings of the city were we'll in place before the railroad. Stupidity of dumbasses such as yourself never ceases to amaze me even when you're presented with bold faced facts proving you wrong.

From the wikipedia entry on Terre Haute:

Early Terre Haute was a center of farming, milling and pork processing. However the business and industrial expansion of the city prior to 1860 developed largely thanks to transportation - the Wabash River, the building of the National Road (now U.S. 40) and the Wabash and Erie Canal linked Terre Haute to the world and broadened the city's range of influence.

Terre Haute was first settled in 1811, becoming the county seat in 1818. The railroads were laid after that however; the railroads were located on the outer edges of town. The town grew around the tracks and it has caused some traffic flow issues though not as bad as some cities experience. It's mainly the flaw of impatient and self centered drivers.

Get on 70 you dumb shits! That way you can be stuck for hours because some dumb ass trucker fell asleep. And by the way I can tell most of the people making the comments are kinda slow so I will just state facts. Power plants can't run without trains. Just a small plant like SG runs 90 ton a hour. So count the trucks that would be driving in town trying to keep up. By the way it been tried and could be done anyway. Next fact. The town was built around the railroad it was here first so move the town.
Here is your original post where you say: "The town was built around the railroad it was here first".

No matter how much you want to try and twist your words this is simply not a true statement. Fighting it and trying to argue that you are right when you are so clearly and obviously wrong makes you an even bigger dumbass than when you started out.

wish I could find away to post a map. Your more then welcome to come down to my office and take a look if you want. Fact is the village grew around the railroad and become a town then a city. I can't believe I've wasted so much time on this lol it started out kind fun... and hell I even learned a few things. We both believe we are right and I don't think that's going to change.

if you could ... Show a credible source of something or someplace that was moved so tracks could be laid. I'm sure that had to be done to get through town if it was here first right?

The first Terre Haute depot was built by Chauncey Rose and the Terre Haute & Richmond Railroad on the north side of Wabash Avenue at 10th Street, east of the railroad tracks. It was prepared to serve patrons by early December 1851. The first train transporting passengers to Indianapolis departed on Feb. 14, 1852. Nine years later it became strictly a freight depot.
The city's second depot was built by William D. Griswold's Evansville & Crawfordsville Railroad on the south side of Wabash Avenue, east of the tracks, in 1854. The Evansville & Crawfordsville Railroad made its first junket to the city on Dec. 24.
The Terre Haute & Alton Railroad built the first railroad bridge over the Wabash River in 1855 and was permitted to use the Terre Haute & Richmond depot as a freight depot. When the Terre Haute & Alton was ready to expand service to St. Louis the next year, it hired Griswold, a Terre Haute lawyer, as president to guide the transition.
The railroad's name was changed to "Terre Haute, Alton and St. Louis Railroad" and, subsequently, "St. Louis, Alton & Terre Haute Railroad."
Displeased with the quality of the accommodations at its first depot, the Terre Haute & Richmond acquired William P. Bennett's Station House Hotel at the northwest corner of 10th and Chestnut streets in 1861, converting it into a new "Union Station."
The Evansville & Crawfordsville -- renamed the Evansville & Terre Haute Railroad in 1867 -- shared use of the depot and, for several years, the facility was used by the Terre Haute, Alton & St. Louis. "Union Station" was an apt name.
The Evansville & Terre Haute Railroad continued to utilize its original depot south of Wabash Avenue as a freight terminal.
In 1867, William Riley McKeen succeeded to the presidency of the Terre Haute & Indianapolis Railroad, bringing with him a vision of the city's rail future. The relationship between Rose, Griswold, McKeen, Josephus Collett and William B. Tuell -- Terre Haute's leading rail barons -- was close. Each assisted the others.
Competition surfaced in 1868 when The Bellefountaine ("Bee Line") Railway founded the Indianapolis & St. Louis Railway, building tracks from Terre Haute to Indianapolis nearly parallel to McKeen's railroad.
The Pennsylvania Railroad, which utilized the Terre Haute & Indianapolis tracks, sought assistance. For a price, McKeen agreed to help The Pennsylvania build and operate the new "St. Louis, Vandalia & Terre Haute Railroad" from Terre Haute to St. Louis.
The Indianapolis & St. Louis Railway eventually entered into an agreement to use the St. Louis, Alton & Terre Haute tracks west of Terre Haute. In the 1870s, it built a passenger depot on the north side of Sixth and Tippecanoe streets and an elaborate freight depot two blocks west.
I'm sure I misspelled a few things and it didn't meet your high level of education, but that's the best I can do using a phone Mr double wide
OK, here is your own post where you refer to the "Terre Haute depot" and the "city's second depot". How was there a Terre Haute Depot at 10th and Wabash if Terre Haute didn't exist until after the railroad was built? You are a dumshit.

Not that I care who wins this pissing contest but...
the depot you're referring to was for the Interurban rail & not national rail use. The Interurban was powered by electricity & not steam & therefore was limited to where it ran. Years ago you would hear people refer to locations in Vigo County as stop 13, stop 14, or whatever, these were the stop number locations where the interurban stopped.

Once again retard, your claim was that it began around the railroad, it didn't. The settlement that began as Terre Haute formed around the Wabash and the soon to be system of national roads. The town's origins had nothing to do with the railroad, simple as that. Five minutes of reading and research and even a complete dumbass as yourself can verify that.

I'm not retracting anything. The city was OFFICIALLY founded in 1853 but that shit didn't just pop up over night. The town began being settled in the early 1800's and industry and commerce was originally driven by access to the Wabash and the emergence of national roads, not the railroad as you claimed, that came later. So once again, five minutes of pulling your head out of yourass and actually researching it will do wonders for you.

Here are two websites, one refers to pork processing being a major industry in Terre Haute prior to the Civil War, the other refers to the founding of a brewery in 1848.
