LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The lights are finally back at the Tippecanoe Arts Federation.
They were debuted Tuesday evening in front of community members.
As we reported back in July of 2018, the pieces of history were stolen from the old Albert Wells Memorial Library.
TAF currently owns the building.
These new lights closely resemble the old ones which date back to 1926.
Most of it was all cast from the original.
TAF's Executive Director Tetia Lee said this is a neoclassical design.
She added she along with the community are happy they can enjoy the new lights.
"A lot of folks used to come here as children and that's what was recognizable to them," said Lee. "It brings back very positive experiences for them."
Lee said whoever stole the lights got about 400 bucks, but the pieces are actually valued at around $40,000.
