Commandant's Row Returns to The "10 Most Endangered List"

Updated: Jun 24, 2019

Indiana Landmarks has placed the Commandant's Row on their annual "10 Most Endangered List" in 2019. At the Indiana Veterans’ Home located in West Lafayette, three buildings still need major repairs - the Administration Building, the Lawrie Library, and the Commandant's Home.

The Wabash Valley Trust for Historic Preservation and Indiana Landmarks recently paid for rehabilitation assessments of the library and administration building. Both the library and the administration building were built in 1896 and have been vacant and neglected for years; there is an immediate need for stabilization to address the damage, as well as a need to find a new use for the landmarks.

The Commandant’s Home (1899) is partially occupied and has undergone some repair, but it is still in need of more repairs. To learn more on this issue, please visit Indiana Landmarks' website.
