Lafayette Nursing Home in Trouble

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

A nursing home in Lafayette, Indiana¬† is in trouble. Despite being part of the town’s landscape for more than 80 years, the buildign has beenvacant for 7. The building is owned by the school district, who at one point used it for an annual haunted house. They closed the house permanently in 2003, after bat droppings made visitors ill.

The school district says the building isn’t usable. Preservationists say it should be restored. The school district says that, even if resorted, it would not serve any notable function for the school. They don’t, after all, need a nursing home at a high school.

What will happen next? Time will tell…
