WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A piece of West Lafayette history will soon begin its renovations.
Exterior construction of the Caretaker's House is the first step of the overhaul, but West Lafayette Mayor John Dennis says the construction is weather dependent.
The red tile roof cottage is an instantly, recognizable landmark.
It's 115 years old and adjacent to the Grand View Cemetery.
As we previously reported it will be turned into a museum for historic archives.
Public support saved the landmark as city officials bought the cottage last year.
Dennis says as funds become available then certain projects will start.
There's no timetable for when the house will be completed.
