Seymour Main Street has identified its next project and is working to secure funds to continue its efforts to revitalize the downtown.

After successfully renovating and selling 112 S. Chestnut St.

this year to local gym Crossfit Seymour, Main Street is beginning the process all over with the former Knights of Pythias building at 103 N. Chestnut St.

“In my opinion, it’s one of the most unique buildings in Seymour,” said Bruce Wynn, chair of Main Street’s economic restructuring committee. “It has a long history, and our goal is to stabilize, secure and keep the integrity of the building for future use.”
