The county home in Pulaski County could be deemed a historic structure.
The commissioners received a letter from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources stating that the county home has been proposed for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
The review board members of the Indiana Division of Historic Preservation will consider the nomination during their meeting on Oct. 22 at 1:30 p.m. ET at the Indiana Government Conference Center in Indianapolis in conference rooms one and two. Pulaski County residents are welcome to attend this meeting and to deliver comments, either pro or con, regarding the application.
Board members are asking that comments be mailed ahead of time to Cameron F. Clark, State Historian Preservation Officer, Division of State Historic Preservation and Archaeology, 402 W. Washington St., Room W-274, Indianapolis, IN 46204-2739. You may also call (317) 232-1646 or visit www.in.gov/dnr/historic.
Pulaski County Historian Janet Onken has worked to get the county home with this distinction for years. The commissioners commended her on her efforts.
