The New Methodist Building Open House…

What an exciting night as the new owners of the Methodist Building opened the doors to host a fun filled evening of great food and spirits and shared their vision of building upon and preserving the historical integrity of our landmark building. Their desire is to recreate an eclectic and unique place for people from all over to come to, explore and experience Shelbyville and for our community to have a great place downtown to live, grow, socialize, do business and connect…

It was awesome to see such a diverse group of people tonight from the Mayor of Shelbyville, Tom DeBaun, MHP CEO, Jack Horner, Tim Hawkins from Congressman Luke Messer’s new downtown office to members from City Council, the Redevelopment Commission, the SCDC, BRCF, and other City Civic Leaders, local business owners, as well as Shelbyville citizens and many others from Indianapolis and surrounding areas.

As we all were enjoying the fantastic food and spirits provided by 18 On the Square, Tour of Italy, Daredevil Brewing Co. And Buck Creek Winery.  Mitch Genser and his partners Sean Carpenter and architect Todd Jersey talked about how they came together and were inspired by the historical beauty and solid bones of the Methodist building and overwhelmed by the warm and welcoming charm of the community of Shelbyville.

Mitch said, “I can promise you that Purple Vetch Properties always finishes what we start and we will see this amazing project through to completion. It is not only going to be great, it is going to set the pace for the exciting growth to come in Shelbyville.” Mitch and his team would love for you to share your memory of the old Methodist Building and/or your vision for the New Methodist Building.
