PENDLETON, Ind. —
”It is quite an honor,” she said. “It feels good and I think it means the town is accepting historic preservation.”
One of biggest moments for the group came when they stopped the demolition of the Stephenson building in downtown Pendleton.
On Wednesday, the town will unveil the plaque honoring the women. The plaque will be permanently attached to the building the group saved. Each woman will also be presented with an individual plaque.
Reske said that since the town officially made the National Register of Historic Places people have seemed to take more pride in their town and houses.
More importantly, Henderson said, people are more interested in visiting Pendleton now.
Jo DeWitt, the office manager for Pendleton, said the town has seen an increase in business since the historic preservation effort.
”The town attracts home buyers, business owners and visitors interested in its historic flavor,” DeWitt said. “This effort has impacted the community in a positive way ever since.”
