Another Hobart Historic District Gets On The Big List
February 5, 2015 — Lakeshore Public Media staff — The Hobart Commercial Historic District and seven other historic sites and districts in Indiana recently won landmark status with support from Indiana Landmarks Partners in Preservation National Register Program.
Hobart’s Commercial Historic District achieved National Register status in December 2014. The area is roughly bounded by Lake George, the railroad, and Center and Second streets, similar to the boundaries of the local historic district established in 2010. The Hobart Redevelopment Commission matched PIP funds to nominate the original downtown area where buildings date from 1870 through 1950.
Other sites that earned National Register listing include private homes, commercial and residential historic districts, a cemetery, and a vintage gas station and diner.
