Preservation 911: Logansport Historic Schneider Building Endangered

Preservation 911. The historic Schneider Building in the 800 Block of 15th has had a condemn order issued against it due to a corner collapse. This property is on our Most endangered list

We believe it can be saved and this corner safely rebuilt. It looks like this was caused due to prolonged water infiltration from the upstairs bathroom rather than a systemic structural issue. We have been in touch with our Mayor and this issue was brought up before the historic commission yesterday, and Indiana Landmarks has seen the building .

Several people have expressed interest in this building as a potential Live/work and there may be a pathway to save it if we can convince Indian Landmarks to take it and stabilize it.

This is the LAST brick commercial building left on the 800 block which at one point was largely commercial. With the rebirth of Midtown this structure should be saved.

Updates will be made available on the Logansport Landmarks FB Page: Logansport Landmarks
