Welcome to City Methodist Church

(Updated 5-16-2016) City Methodist Church, located in Gary Indiana, is one of the best known and most popular Midwest locations for Urban Explorers (UrBex), movie crews, indie films, music video shoots, and photographers. Not bad for a structure that's been abandoned since 1975, and is slowly crumbling. See the latest roof damage. Remember: Permits are now REQUIRED!!!

Virtual Tour

City Methodist Virtul Tour

My goal is to shoot 360 degree interactive images throughout the church. Next best thing to being there! Information, roll-overs and more are part of each interactive image.

Photo Gallery

Wide angle, fisheye, panoramic - even fashion and themed shoots. I'll add photos often. They're all on Flickr, so while you're there, check out my other photos - and the cool photos others have shot of this great location.

See my before/after shot.

Photo Shoots - In my history of shooting the church, I have shot over 22,000 photos and 20+ 360 tour images. Bumped into several movie crews, nude model shoots, a music video shoot, fashion photogs and dozens of Urbex groups...and see this Gothic beauty slowly turn to a ruin.

Damage Update (2011-2015)! Wall damage, scrapping, stair damage and a lot more. The place is reallyng going to hell - fast. Includes photos. Permits are now REQUIRED!!!
