Rehab Work Underway on Historic New Castle Building
The Keiser building in downtown New Castle will soon see new life. Preserve Henry County originally bought the building, which dates back to 1872, with plans to partially restore it before selling to new owners who will complete the rehab work.
Indiana Landmarks is supporting the construction effort with a $60,000 loan from the Efroymson Family Endangered Places Fund, which will ensure the building’s character is maintained. The New Castle Redevelopment Commission also awarded $100,000 for the work.
The project includes restoration of the façade, along with structural repairs in the basement, exterior stabilization and roof replacement. The city will evaluate potential buyers once work is finished to ensure goals are met for downtown development.
