Tribune photo by Aubrey Woods / Brownstown councilmen adopted a master plan Monday evening to help with efforts to revitalize the 100 block of East Walnut Street and other areas of the county seat's business district. Brownstown/Ewing Main Street helped initiate the master plan recently completed by RATIO Architects, Indianapolis.
Fire destroyed two buildings in the middle of the 100 block of East Walnut Street on the north side of the courthouse square in Brownstown in August 2009.
Three years later, town council members have adopted a master plan that could lead to a new use for the two lots where those buildings once stood as well as the sites of two buildings that once housed a feed mill.
“You could remove both buildings, creating a community space,” said Ben Ross, an historic preservation specialist with RATIO Architects of Indianapolis.
