There’s interest in an old school building in La Porte. Some people from Michigan City are looking at the old Maple Elementary School, located on North Street, just south of E. Lincolnway.
City councilman Roger Galloway says the interested buyers are looking at using the place
for private events like weddings, workout rooms and possibly living on one of the floors. He says more will be known on the plans as the approvals process runs its course and a sale goes through.
Galloway says an electric company occupied the building in more recent years but it’s been
empty for several years now.
