A statewide gathering focusing on community revitalization is underway in Wabash. The Preserving Historic Places conference, a collaboration among organizations including the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, Indiana Landmarks and Indiana University, runs through Friday.

The event comes less than a year after the city was named winner of the $500,000 national Small Business Revolution competition. The four-day Preserving Historic Places will feature tours, workshops and educational sessions that showcase the city's revitalization efforts and bring together state and national leaders to discuss the subject.

Keynote speakers include Cameron Potts of Minnesota-based Deluxe Corp. (NYSE: DLX), sponsor of the Small Business Revolution contest and Charles Marohn, who founded the nonprofit Strong Towns, which advocates for a development model that focuses on growing financially strong and resilient cities, towns and neighborhoods.
