Regional office moving into Richmond’s formerly endangered Reid Center

Historic church will become home to Indiana Landmarks’ Eastern Regional Office

Once an endangered space, the former Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church is now a thriving performing arts venue called The Reid Center, and next week it will become home to Indiana Landmarks’ Eastern Regional Office.

Indiana Landmarks placed the 1906 church building on its 10 Most Endangered list in 2019 and 2020, after the church closed six years ago.

Local volunteers created a partnership to forge a new life for the building, working with Indiana Landmarks and the Whitewater Valley Presbytery to find a new use for the church.

“We’re so pleased to be part of the remarkable collaboration that renews Reid Memorial’s status as a community asset,” said Marsh Davis, president of Indiana Landmarks. “We hope our tenancy will assist not only in preserving the remarkable structure but in supporting ongoing revitalization in the surrounding neighborhood.”

Brittany Miller, director of Indiana Landmarks’ Eastern Regional Office, and Stevie Meyer, community preservation specialist, will move into the Reid Center. The Gothic limestone building boasts 62 stained-glass windows by Tiffany Studios, a 1905 Hook and Hastings pipe organ and a 1902 Starr Piano Company 9-foot concert grand piano.

The Reid Center is located in Richmond’s Starr Historic District, a current entry on Indiana Landmarks’ 10 Most Endangered list. By relocating to the Starr neighborhood, the organization hopes to emphasize its investment in the area.

“This is a special moment for us,” says Miller. “After working for years to save the church, we’re thrilled to be among Reid Center’s first tenants and excited to be part of one of Richmond’s most important historic districts.”

The move marks the first time Indiana Landmarks’ Eastern Regional Office has relocated since the statewide organization established a presence in eastern Indiana in 1974. The Eastern Regional Office was previously located at the historic Huddleston Farmhouse in Cambridge City. In 2023, Indiana Landmarks sold the Huddleston property with protective covenants to organic farmers Tyler and Gentry Gough, who are using it as a private farm and educational site.
