FISHERS, Ind. - Those who love a historic fixture in Fishers will be glad to hear a company has announced plans to save it.
Friday morning, the Noblesville Preservation Alliance and local employer Navient said the company will donate two acres of land so the historic Flannigan House can be moved.
A couple months back, developers announced plans to demolish the historic farmhouse on 106th Street and Kincaid Drive that has stood in the same spot for 153 years.
The community has been trying for months to save the historic structure.
And those efforts have paid off.
The developers agreed to delay its plans so that the preservation alliance and Indiana Landmarks could find a solution, which gave them time to find the suitable land. The developers, Thompson Thrift, even offered to contribute additional funds to the expense of moving the house, if a new site could be found.
Navient donated two acres on the west side of its Fishers campus on USA Parkway for the house's relocation. The house will need to travel a bit less than a mile to its future home.
Officials hope to move the house sometime this fall.
