Demolition Permit for Founders Memorial Hall Requested

June 29, 2011

Taylor University has applied for a demolition permit for Founders Memorial Hall on historic Rudisill Boulevard.

The final chapter in the upstanding history of Fort Wayne Bible College, Summit Christian College and TUFW will have an even sadder ending as one of the three original campus buildings meets the wrecking ball. Everyone understands Taylor’s need to sell the old campus. But summoning the bulldozers is the intellectually laziest way to answer the question of adaptive reuse.

The Board and President of Taylor University continue their “bulldoze and close” policy in regard to the fair-haired stepchild that was the Fort Wayne campus.

Here’s to hoping that Ambassador Enterprises buys the property soon and finds an adaptive reuse for Schultz Hall and Bethany Hall…
