FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Update on 314 S Washington St, Marion: A Shift in Direction

The Indiana Motorcycle Preservation Society (IMPS) board convened on Monday, February 26th, for a crucial meeting to deliberate the acquisition of 314 S. Washington St, Marion. After extensive research and thoughtful discussion, the board has collectively decided not to pursue ownership of the building.

Carmen Mitchell, the owner of Pat Mitchell’s estate, played a vital role in this evaluation process, actively engaging with IMPS to explore various options and possibilities, in collaboration with Indiana Landmarks, SOS Marion, and the Community Foundation of Grant County.

While the decision not to proceed with the building marks a shift in our initial plans, it aligns with our commitment to make thoughtful, informed choices that best serve our organization’s mission and the broader community.

IMPS remains dedicated to its core objectives of preserving and celebrating Indiana’s motorcycle heritage. We appreciate the ongoing support from our community and look forward to continuing our efforts to contribute positively to the legacy of Marion as Home of the Hog, and Indiana as a whole.
