Evansville neighborhood gets new 'front door'

The city of Evansville has repurposed an archway once used as a welcoming sign for the city's downtown. The arch now serves as a gateway to the city's growing Jacobsville neighborhood, which Mayor Stephanie Terry called a "cornerstone of a strong, vibrant city."

The arch at one time sat at the head of Main Street in downtown Evansville but was removed during the construction of the Ford Center. The city's redevelopment commission moved it to Garvin Park until the recent decision was made to move it to the Jacobsville neighborhood.

Now sitting at the corner of North Main and Franklin streets, the arch features a new "Welcome to Jacobsville" sign at its peak.
