Holiday Open House spotlights preservation success story
Back in 2008, Indiana Landmarks partnered with the City of Elkhart to convert a vacant former funeral parlor in the State Division Street Historic District back into a single-family home. Fast forward nearly six years, and the 1865 Sage House is a spectacular success story.
The house sits in the SoMa (South Main) planning area, a revitalization initiative focused on the city’s downtown and near-downtown neighborhoods. Working with city, Indiana Landmarks removed an ugly addition that covered the house’s handsome Italianate features, reconstructed a porch based on historic photos, and applied an eye-catching new paint scheme. Check out photos of the restoration-in-progress on Flickr.
See the transformation yourself on Thursday, December 5, when the home’s future owners, Bobbie and Anastasia Glassburn, welcome members of Indiana Landmarks at our Holiday Open House at the Sage House.
The open house is free for members, but we request an RSVP at elkhartholiday.eventbrite.com. For more information contact Todd Zeiger, 574-232-4534, firstname.lastname@example.org.
