Rebuilt Indiana community center shows town's resilience

MARYSVILLE — A southern Indiana town devastated by deadly tornadoes in 2012 is celebrating the rededication of a building that has long been the heart of the community.

The News and Tribune reports the Marysville Community Center was rededicated Saturday. The former school building was constructed in 1937 and had hosted weddings, birthday parties and funeral services since 1973.

It was heavily damaged by the tornadoes that ripped through the area on March 2, 2012, and some feared it might not be rebuilt and that the town would cease to exist.

Marysville native Chris Gilbert says the rededication is proof that the community's spirit survived the storm and that the town will persevere.
