A pair of proposed apartment projects will not be happening this year in Washington. Proposals by a couple of firms that had sought city support as they tried to get special housing credits to finance the project were turned down by the state.
“We had two developers from Ohio that came to the city this summer and they were applying to the Indiana Housing and Community Development Agency for rental housing incentives,” said Washington Mayor Joe Wellman. “It was a competitive application to the state to get the tax credits to build those. It was a very competitive process and neither one of them scored high enough to be approved.”
In 1917, the song “(Back Home Again in) Indiana” was first released.
In 1971, The Jackson 5 sang “Goin’ Back to Indiana.”
But since about 2017, Indiana’s song could be Woody Guthrie’s “I Ain’t Got No Home.”

In Cass County, there are 129 houses on the market with 25 of those pending sale completion — an offer has been accepted and paperwork is being done.
