Preservation Partners Honored At Common Council Meeting

During the month of May communities across the country celebrated National Historic Preservation Month by recognizing the efforts of people who have saved places that matter. As part of the celebration in Mishawaka, the Mishawaka Historic Preservation Commission honored people who worked hard to save a place that matters to all of us. With foresight, patience and persistence, these people helped create a new life for a familiar old place - Main Junior High School.
