Reprieve for historic home

A court ruling this week will enable Indiana Landmarks to at least begin to rehabilitate the historic Cone-Schuck home.—PD&S File Photo
The historic Cone-Schuck home has been spared from the wrecking ball, at least for now.

In a ruling this week, Jennings County Circuit Court Judge Jon Webster ruled the Area Plan Commission is "preliminarily enjoined from demolishing the home at 305 South Jennings Street" in North Vernon. The injunction will expire no later than Dec. 13, 2018, unless extended by Circuit Court.

In the meantime, Indiana Landmarks, which has championed saving the home, was ordered to post a $500 cash surety with the county clerk.

The nonprofit will now have its day in court on Aug. 22 with the court hearing its argument why it should be allowed six months to provide Indiana Landmarks the opportunity to cure the unsafe conditions at the property.

The condition of the 1894 Victorian home has been the subject of numerous Area Plan Commission attempts to have it repaired.

On June 25, 2012, the APC filed its first motion in court seeking demolition or an order to repair the property. By Aug. 6, 2015 the court authorized the APC to complete repairs itself, including removing the deteriorated porch; however, the APC never completed the work.
