Settlement agreement saves historic Jeffersonville homes

Up to eight properties being considered for relocation



Indiana Landmarks had previously offered its concern about the properties being torn down in the historic district. The news that the settlement agreement included an offer to save some the homes came as a relief to Sekula.

“Landmarks has been concerned about the fate of these properties for some time,” he said. “We were delighted they were able to include this as a way to address the situation.”



Beyond the pledge to pay for the relocation of five homes in Jeffersonville’s historic district, INDOT made several other commitments in Southern Indiana.

Among those projects were to try and acquire a preservation easement for the lime kiln located within the right-of-way of Upper River Road; develop a historical marker for the Utica lime kilns; develop a roadside historical marker for the former Indiana Army Ammunition Plant igloos; and prepare National Historic Register nomination documentation for the Colgate-Palmolive Historic District before the end of the year
