Town of Clarksville seeking proposals on history preservation project
CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (WAVE) - The town of Clarksville government is asking for proposals on a project to preserve local history.
They want a classic bell tower to be incorporated into a new landmark.
Clarksville is going through a bit of a revitalization these past few years, but they don’t want to leave their past behind.
The George Rogers Clark Public School was built in 1899, and held the bell tower until 1973 when it was removed.
The school closed in the 2000s and the building was sold to Safe Harbor Community Church in 2008, according to the News and Tribune.
The bell is now housed at Clarksville High School.
But now the town wants to make it part of a new exhibit, a historical site near Colgate Park.
They’re asking for project proposals that would use that bell tower, likely on top of a new tower, incorporating other artistic and architectural designs.
The town is accepting proposals for a month. Click or tap here for more on how to submit a proposal.
