City orders three structures demolished
By Joseph Slacian
 
Three more structures were ordered to be razed by the Wabash Board of Public Works & Safety in the city’s effort to get rid of unsafe buildings.
 
One site is a home at 758 Spring St., while the other two are one-story structures located at 1 Bent Court. A two-story structure at the Bent Court location was saved, at least for now.
 
Meanwhile, the board received detailed plans from Harold Burns, who is refurbishing a home at 645 Washington St.
 
The owner of the Spring Street home, KAJA Holdings of Columbia, S.C., was given 30 days to raze the home and unattached garage. If not done, the city will begin the process of having the structures removed.

Roann Library plans for 100th year celebration

Plans are in the works for the 100th year celebration of the current Roann Public Library. In order to secure a building grant from the Carnegie Corporation, a working library had to already be in operation in the proposed community.

In an effort spearheaded by Martha Van Buskirk, a library was opened in the Roann School building in 1914. The library was started in a room at the school house with books donated by the community in a book shower. Other books were borrowed from the State Library and the library was open each Saturday afternoon. The high school class of 1914 built shelves to accommodate the books. Those shelves are now located in the library Indiana Room, which houses genealogical and local historical holdings at the library. Having fulfilled all the terms of the grant application, a grant of $10,000 was made by the Carnegie Corporation and the cornerstone for the new building was laid in 1916, with completion of the building following.
