South Washington Street Rising

Washington’s birthday and Washington Street rising were celebrated with a tour of the PC&C Railroad Station. The party continued at God’s House Ministries. Speakers were Dave Homer, Mayor Jesse Alumbaugh, Deb and Susan Divine from the Quilters Hall of Fame, and Susan Lankford from Ball State School of Architecture.

Ms.Lankford presented the “Marion Action Plan” a document prepared by BSU students as a design plan for a revival of Washington Street from downtown to 14th Street.
