Historic Renovation Seminar
When you have something of value, it’s best to call an expert. Ashley Thomas, Historic Architecture Specialist with the Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology, made a special visit to the Pantheon to share specifics of the Historic Renovation Grant Program available to local property owners. We can’t wait to see what recipients of these funds do to help revitalize our historic structures!
Congrats, Mike Jacob!

Thank You, Old National Bank!
We can’t say enough about our community partners. Without their support, the impact we have on Knox County and its current and future businesses would be significantly limited.
We want to send a huge “thank you” to the Old National Bank Foundation for providing us with $20k to support our co-workers, members, and driven entrepreneurs. We couldn’t do it without partners like you!
This past month, we hosted a stellar Business Resource Round-up with the support of the Southwest Indiana Small Business Development Center & the Knox County Chamber of Commerce. With the help of our many presenters, local businesses learned about the low and/or no-cost resources available to them such as Southwest Indiana Small Business Development Center, the Indiana Procurement & Technical Assistance Center, Elevate Ventures, Purdue Foundry, and IU School of Law.
We are so thankful for these partners and their invaluable services to our community!
Art & Design Professor, Ron Wise, encourages his Portfolio classes at Vincennes University to attend and engage with practicing artists. Professor Wise noted that the input from experienced professionals in the field is a tremendous asset to his students’ learning experiences.
