Cannelton Historic District Appears on Indiana Landmarks 10 Most Endangered List

Once a year, Indiana Landmarks announces the 10 Most Endangered, a list of historic places on the brink of extinction and too important to lose. The Cannelton Historic District appears on the list for 2019. The downtown historic district is roughly bounded by Richardson, Taylor, First, Eighth and Madison Streets. 

Cannelton’s historic district encompasses much of the town, including houses, downtown commercial buildings, churches, and the Cannelton Cotton Mill, a National Historic Landmark. Like the mill, many of the district’s structures, which date from 1837 to 1936, feature locally quarried honey-colored sandstone, a distinctive signature of the river town.
