Josiah White’s has been nominated and accepted to join The National Register of Historic Places! The campus located south of Wabash, IN, was established in 1850 and continues in operation today. Approval for the National Register was granted by the Indiana Historic Review Board and will soon be listed through the National Park Service.
“It is wonderful to be recognized for the historical significance of the grounds and buildings, yet I am often more amazed at the legacy and spiritual significance of how many lives have been changed on this campus since 1850,” said Andy Stout, Director of Donor Relations. “I am proud to help keep the heritage and history of Josiah White’s alive and active.”
Many of the buildings date back to the early 20th century including the stone pillar gateways, Gilbert Hall, the boy’s gym, and many other structures. The ponds along the north entrance date back to the late 1800s and were a source of ice in the winter time to fill the ice houses for food preservation throughout the summer. It is with great honor we recognize our history and continued importance in serving youth and families throughout Indiana.
