New Logansport city limit signs celebrate historic architecture

An oval design featuring the historic character of homes and buildings in Logansport will welcome visitors to the city.

The city has released the images of the signs which have arrived after months of preparation. Signs feature renderings of historic architecture first captured in a mural commissioned for the former National Bank of Logansport when it opened in 1976. When the bank was later remodeled, the ownership of the mural was transferred to McHale Performing Arts Center, where the mural is on display in the upper lobby.

Photographer Rich Voorhees worked to replicate the images for reproduction on city limit signs.

In concert with the new signs, downtown street signs have been added to reflect the respective historic districts – Bankers Row on Eel River Avenue, the Point south of Bankers Row, and the Courthouse District.

Mayor Dave Kitchell said the signage is part of the city’s ongoing commitment as a Preserve America City to recognize and appreciate the many historic structures in the community.
