153-year-old Fishers home may be closer to salvation

FISHERS, Ind. - A historic Fishers home may no longer be in danger of being destroyed.

Last week RTV6 reported that developers planned to demolish the historic farmhouse on 106th Street and Kincaid Drive. The house has stood in that same spot for 153 years.

But now, we’re told different architectural historians have stepped in to help.

One option would be to move the home to another property, which preservationists say is an expensive process. At least two property owners, however, have offered the farmhouse a new home.

The Indiana Landmarks Association says the other option is to build around the house, which is eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.

The parties involved in the house’s fate are scheduled to meet again in the coming weeks.
