1014 South Street Update
Updated: Jul 16, 2019
As some of you may remember, at the end of 2018 a notice for demolition went up at 1014 South St in Lafayette, IN. When the Wabash Valley Trust saw this, we had to act. We posted an online petition that garnered thousands of signatures in opposition to the demolition. After seeing people in our community sign the petition, St. Mary's Cathedral sat down with
The Wabash Valley Trust and other interested parties to discuss viable options for the building, which included proposals that were a compromise between the church's interests and our community's interests. While we are happy to state the building is still standing at this moment in time, St. Mary's has not publicly announced any decision on the building's fate. This issue is still under our critical watch, and we hope the ultimate decision is that the building can remain standing.
