We kept the campaign information (below) as a reminder of how hard work and cooperation can make excellent things happen. But NOW IT'S TIME TO CELBRATE.
The Rail Tower will move on Thursday, July 29.
We will have more details about time and events,
BUT IT WILL BE A PARTY as a two story brick building moves through the streets of Union City. An awesome memory for kids -- and adults who like to feel like kids.
THANKS TO ALL WHO MADE THIS POSSIBLE.
A single project that... Improves UC lifestyle, helps revitalize downtown,
provides another historical landmark and is a great real estate deal!
Check the video below, then scroll down to understand how we work together to do it affordably!
We have reached the $50,000 goal, assuring that we will receive a $50,000 matching grant. THANK YOU to all who donated and who helped spread the word.
During the campaign, we received great ideas to strengthen this historical story, including artifacts inside the Rail Tower and murals outside that will recreate the view that Rail Tower employees had while directing traffic. We have set an EXTENDED GOAL of $60,000 to help pay for these additions to a project that will improve downtown tourist activity, all part of downtown revitalization.
Deadline is March 20. Scroll south to Donation Form.
For just over $90,000, We can move the tower and refurbish it, ready to provide restrooms and a visitors' information center -- and in a value sense, a great addition now and for generations to come.
We are enhancing the lifestyle value of Artisan Crossing, adding another link to the downtown revitalization effort, and adding another historical landmark to Union City's unique cultural tradition.
Because of the historical preservation value of the project, we have been approved for a $50,000 matching grant by IHCDA, the Indiana Housing & Community Development Authority!
This grant will match our giving dollar for dollar to $50,000, 100% return on investment
