Lagro revitalizaton continues

By Joseph Slacian

The Lagro Canal Foundation, which has worked to refurbish three downtown buildings, has sold them to Jen and Ben Bailey.

Foundation officials announced the sale to The Paper of Wabash County during a board meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 21.
In addition to the sale, Foundation officials also announced they recently purchased two other buildings in downtown Lagro – the former Lagro Café, 870 Washington St., and a pole building at 820 E. Washington St.

The three buildings – the former Citizens State Bank Building, the former Masonic Lodge and the former Improved Order of the Red Man lodge – were purchased in 2017 by the Foundation. Since then, volunteers have been working on refurbishing the building with new tuck pointing, new windows, a new drainage system and more.
