Written comments are still being accepted by the Division of State Historic Preservation and Archaeology for consideration to classify the county home in Pulaski County as a historical structure.
The Indiana Department of Natural Resources notified county officials last week that the Pleasant View Rest Home has been proposed for nomination to the National Register of Historic Places.
The Indiana Division of Historic Preservation will consider the nomination during their meeting on Oct. 22 at 1:30 p.m. ET at the Indiana Government Conference Center in Indianapolis in conference rooms one and two. Pulaski County residents are welcome to attend this meeting.
The comment was made during the Pulaski County Council meeting this week that if the county home receives this distinction grants would be available to help keep up structure needs at the facility.
Board members are asking that comments be mailed ahead of time to Cameron F. Clark, State Historian Preservation Officer, Division of State Historic Preservation and Archaeology, 402 W. Washington St., Room W-274, Indianapolis, IN 46204-2739. For more information, call (317) 232-1646 or visit www.in.gov/dnr/historic
