On behalf of the research group from the University of Notre Dame, we invite members
of our community for a case study of our neighborhood’s dilapidated 16th Street Train Station.

The Objective:
Historical research and architectural survey for restoration and revitalization of the historic 16th Street Station.
The Project:
Historic architecture faculty and students from the University of Notre Dame, Indiana will conduct on-site research from April 4th through April 8th. The team specializes in historical preservation of buildings including large scale projects such as the Roman Forum in Italy. This project is sponsored by the University of Notre Dame and highly encourages participation from members of the community for their input and vision.

The project will be a case study and the documentation may be used by the owner for their future plans. This undertaking will greatly improve the image of our neighborhood and grow the awareness of this unique landmark we inherit. The project is supported by Bridge Housing (the current ownership) and RAILS (Restoration Association for Improving the Landmark 16 St. Station).
