TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A month's long make-over continues on a piece of Terre Haute history.

The second coat of red paint has been placed on the Clabber Girl Baking Powder sign.

Plans were announced to restore the historic sign in October.

The 44-foot-long billboard, which sits along U.S. Highway 40 has welcomed visitors to Terre Haute more than 80 years.
