Wabash Valley Trust Historic Preservation
There’s never been a better opportunity to own a piece of Old Town Lafayette’s history, while helping to shape its future! The historic Zinn-Fitzgerald House is a Second Empire Style 3-story structure featuring a mansard roof, slate roof tiles, cornice, window details and a corner tower. While not currently “designated” by the city, there could be tax credits, grants and pro bono consultations, for the exterior of the structure, which sits within a national historic district of downtown Lafayette. The almost 5000 SF piece of history was built in 1863, when Abraham Lincoln was president of the United States! It was previously the Lafayette Conservatory of Music from 1912-1943. Great views of downtown Lafayette from the 3rd floor. Currently the property is zoned CB with the intent to provide core business areas in central parts of the city for commercial or residential opportunities. Check the Unified Zoning Ordinance of Tippecanoe Co for more info. Wabash Valley Trust plaque is simply for historic recognition. Cash only, proof of funds required.
Columbia Street West to Downtown, home is on corner of Columbia and 8th.
