Repurposing a masterpiece
Saving a National Historic Landmark in the remarkable town of Columbus involved drama and a bit of suspense. What would happen to the revolutionary Modern icon?

 
Arguably the first “Modern” bank building in the world, the 1954 Eero Saarinen-designed Irwin Union Bank and Trust building is a Miesian masterpiece in downtown Columbus.
Serving a new purpose
By repurposing the former Washington Avenue Presbyterian Church, Next Step Foundation saved an important Terre Haute landmark.

 
The building's prominent location gives the nonprofit a unique opportunity to provide programs to people recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.
African American history
Thanks to a $50,000 grant from the Harrison County Council the c.1891 Leonard Carter House in Corydon will be repurposed as a Civil War learning center, focusing on the war’s impact on Harrison County.

 
Leonard Carter was an African American Civil War veteran and leader in the local AME church.
Save the Owen Block
Indiana Landmarks considers the Second Empire-style Owen Block a “must save.” We're raising money to prevent demolition of the building in Evansville's Riverside Historic District.

 
Even in its dilapidated state, Evansville’s Owen Block is show-stopper.
