former Colgate factory
Jeffersonville, IN
The main building of the Colgate factory was built in 1890. It had been previously used as a prison. Colgate moved in to the building in 1921 and began soap production. An addition shown in the photos above was built in the 1940s for office space. Colgate moved in 2008 and I believe this building as well as the main one are still vacant. The property is best known for the other former Colgate building with the huge neon clock. [map]

Sears Automotive Building
New Albany, IN
The Sears Automotive Building was built in 1929. The building was vacant and being restored when these photos were taken in 2010. The building still appeared vacant in 2014. [map]

Union Station
South Bend, IN

Union Station opened in 1929. It was designed by Fellheimer & Wagner who also designed the Buffalo Central and Cincinnati Union terminals. It officially closed as a train station in 1970 when Amtrak moved their operations elsewhere in South Bend. The station is now used by Global Access Point, an off-site computer data center. The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. For more, see this website. [bottom photos thanks Lori Zimmerman] [map]
