Gary, Indiana celebrates the Jacksons with new honor

(May 22, 2021) Brothers Marlon and Tito Jackson visited the site of the house at which they grew up, as the City of Gary, Indiana celebrated 2300 Jackson Street with new highway signage and new hope. 2300 Jackson Street was also the name of the 1989 album by the Jacksons, which was recently re-released in deluxe edition. 

Combined with the recent building of a Hard Rock Cafe nearby, the home of the legendary Jackson 5 and their famous siblings provides the area with greater inflow of visitors from outside the city, and is a cause for celebration in the town and a hope for a rebirth of the economically depressed area. The unveiling of the new signage was another milestone, as reported exclusively by Chicago's WTTW, below

Congratulation to the Jacksons and to the City of Gary.
