A fundraiser this weekend will help preserve a historic building in Vermillion County.
The building is currently home to the Vermillion County Historical Society.
However, it used to be the old jail. The building was constructed in the 1800s and housed inmates until 1992.
The structure is an Indiana landmark and it’s on the registry of historical places.
A fundraiser on Saturday is part of ongoing efforts to preserve this historic location.
“We’re in a constant fundraising mode. Since we’re on the National Register of Historic Places, we’re eligible for grant money, but with matching grants, we have to come up with that,” says Steve Axtell, president of the Vermillion County Historical Society.
You can help with the building’s upkeep at the Cabin Fever Extravaganza Antique and Craft Show.
It will take place this Saturday, March 16, from 9 A.M. to 3 P.M. at the Cayuga Park 4-H Building.
Admission is $3. There will be vendors, breakfast and lunch available.
