TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - One historical landmark is slated to close.
The Deming Center in downtown Terre Haute will soon have no residents.
The Deming Center is a low-income facility at Sixth and Cherry streets.
It's been around since the early 1900s.
And now, it will soon be empty.
Its days may be numbered but one other facility will get new life.
"Kind of what the plan is, we're building a new project out on 25th Street, the old Warren School location, that will be developed over the coming years and it will give us an opportunity to move those tenants from that building to that location, to a brand new facility or to any other locations in order to do rehabbing or whatever needs to be done," said Terre Haute Mayor Duke Bennett.
The former Warren Elementary School on North 25th Street will be renovated and upgraded.
As many tenants as can be will be moved to this new facility.
It also has strong Terre Haute roots, founded more than 100 years ago. The city wants to preserve the history of these buildings.
"You want to preserve that. Everybody wants to make sure that if you have an older building, its possible to rehab and use it, that's what you want to do because it is a historic building," said Mayor Bennett.
Mayor Bennett said they only have the best interest of the tenants in mind.
They have a lot of property that needs to be upgraded and this made the top of the list.
"(What they're thinking is, this is going to be good for our tenants?) Absolutely. They need to be safe, but as time goes on, things begin to wear out, it becomes very expensive, at some point you have to do a major overhaul of a building," said Mayor Bennett.
Officials say in order to accomplish the work needing to be done on the old Deming Center, it's best to get the tenants into newer housing.
The move is expected to take place in 2015.
