In 1926 Terre Haute, Indiana, was at the geographic crossroads of America. Terre Haute was a small town on the edge of greatness, building the artifacts of big cities—Shrine Temples, train hubs, and baseball parks—some still here, others, long gone.

Hometown: A Journey Through Terre Haute takes an in-depth look at six of these buildings, transporting the viewer to a place that stands as monument to the way most Americans lived their lives in 1926. Based on the popular public radio program Hometown with Tom Roznowski, the documentary features Roznowski on a walking tour of Terre Haute that becomes an improvisational exploration of history.
