I am including images of the two-page story here:
Demolition of the building began in August of 2007. (Photos from page 5, Logansport Pharos Tribune, August 21, 2007 issue.)
The reporter for the Pharos Tribune states above that the building "dates to the 1870s" however my own research places the construction of the building in the 1919 range.
What follows is an editorial from the Pharos Tribune, August 22, 2007, page 5.
After the demolition of the big old building the owner, Jeff Benish (now deceased), repaired and made improvements to the small building that remained. He made it look quite presentable. After a time Mr. Benish opened a sort of ice cream and sandwich shop there. He envisioned outside tables where one could enjoy the view of the river while having a snack or a small meal. I am reporting on this vision as it was told to me, personally, by Jeff Benish.
Eventually he decided to offer a form of entertainment and he built another structure, more of a storage unit, and attached a small stage to it for karaoke singing on the weekend evenings.
As I enter this information into this blog, June 2020, the property is for sale.
