Logansport, Indiana is not just a small town, we are a small city! Logansport has a long community tradition of entrepreneurship, and we are home to many small independent businesses, ranging from small eateries and Mom-and-Pop stores, to larger businesses. Many of our historic buildings need some TLC to regain their former splendor. With an excellent trail system and a growing network of bike lanes, we are cyclist and pedestrian friendly. Efforts are underway now to establish a regional network of trails with neighboring counties, so residents and visitors can enjoy physical activity in the great outdoors, improving both their physical and emotional health. We have a rich tradition in the arts, including the Cass County Dentzel Carousel (a National Historic Landmark), and a state-of-the-art performance venue, McHale Performing Arts Center. Our Main Street organization, Logan's Landing, is developing a downtown Arts & Culture District, with public art including a 13-foot tall metal statue entitled "The Dancers," created by a local craftsman. We are hope to both Ivy Tech Community College and Trine University. One initiative currently underway is "Logansport Re-Imagined," in which residents across a broad range of demographics have been asked to re-imagine aspects of our community, embrace our community's diversity, and work together as a team to improve the community for all residents. Winning the America's Main Street contest would enable us to make some of our dreams a reality - perhaps further development of the downtown arts district, perhaps funding a portion of trail connections, perhaps focusing on restoration of historic buildings. There is no shortage of projects in need of funding. In 2018, Logansport was a Top 25 Quarterfinalist in this contest, and this year we plan to go all the way. We have so many assets and positive attributes already - help us accomplish our dreams!
