Greenfield, Indiana

Restoring historic facades bringing continued invigoration to a dynamic community.

Sitting at the crossroads of two major roads, US 40, the old National Road, and Indiana State Road 9, Greenfield's downtown has been a center of commerce for over 150 years. Its architecture reflects its long and varied history, with examples of everything from Romanesque Revival to Brutalist architectural styles.

After working with ARCHitecture Trio to complete their Downtown Revitalization Plan in 2013, the City of Greenfield proceeded with the next steps to pursue a Main Street Revitalization Program Façade Grant through the Indiana Office of Community and Rural Affairs. Awarded their first grant in 2016, the first Façade Renovation Project was completed with ARCHtrio in 2017.

As a STELLAR Community, in 2019, a second grant was awarded to the City, and they began the process of securing building owner commitments to participate in the grant program. The project included a Phase 1 preliminary design study and completion of a Section 106 Historic Preservation Review. In 2020, the project was narrowed to the renovation of five historic facades. Work began in January of 2022 and was completed in April of 2023. Greenfield has invested in their downtown for several years, bringing commerce and life into the district.

The façade restoration project included assistance to the City of Greenfield in identifying buildings for participation, scope of work, and potential costs. Field investigation, development of construction documents and construction administration services were undertaken for five buildings in the downtown, including historic Bradley Hall, Greenfield Christian Church, the Thayer Building, Greenfield Chamber of Commerce, and the former Riley Theater.
