At the request of the McMillen Foundation, a City of Fort Wayne contractor today will begin work to take down the obsolete Bowser buildings located at 1302 E. Creighton Ave. After the work is completed, the McMillen Foundation, which owns the buildings, will donate the property to the YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne. The adjacent Renaissance Pointe YMCA will use it for recreational activities.
The history of the Bowser buildings and the Bowser Company will be memorialized with two historical markers placed in Bowser Park, located at the corner of Reed and Fisher streets. Residents are invited to provide input about the design and content of the markers at an upcoming public meeting.
