Divine restoration
In the shadow of Ferdinand’s magnificent restored Monastery Immaculate Conception, another town landmark is getting similar treatment. St. Ferdinand Catholic Church has served as center of community life since its construction in 1846-48.

 
Workers repair and replaster the vaulted ceiling at St. Ferdinand Catholic Church.
Demolition reprieve
In January, two Indianapolis properties received a temporary demolition reprieve to give preservation advocates time to propose alternative solutions.

 
The threat of demolition is not new to the Simpson Hall. Vacant for over three decades, the building once served as the girls’ dormitory at the Indiana School for the Deaf.
Practicing preservation
Indiana, too, claims a Carnegie Hall. The impressive mass and tall tower of the Hoosier version dominate the small town of Moores Hill (population 600). Preservation and reuse have long been a part of the landmark's history.

 
A new phase of restoration is underway to ready the landmark’s second floor for a variety of new uses.
Support for listing
A grant from Indiana Landmarks’ Partners in Preservation (PIP) program will help fund National Register nominations for historic districts in four Putnam County communities.

 
The proposed district in Cloverdale includes a c.1848 octagon house, one of only a handful remaining in Indiana.
