Welcome to City Methodist Church

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. It's even been host to goth weddings and receptions! Not bad for a structure that's been abandoned since 1975, and is slowly crumbling. Remember: Permits are now REQUIRED!!!

Virtual Tour

City Methodist Virtul Tour

My goal is to shoot 360 degree interactive images throughout the church. I'll be adding to this tour as time permits. Currently there are several immersive images allowing you to look in all directions. 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 shots.
