The Henry County Commissioners and land bank board have accepted the donation of property in Holgate which can be utilized for rehabilitation and development. The parcel is the former gas station property at Kauffman and Wilhelm Streets, which is currently owned by Zachrich Funeral Home. The property is one-tenth of an acre, and will require removal of some underground tanks. Henry County will be applying for a grant to help pay for this removal, and rehab of the property.
And the Henry County Commissioners will be closing on the former Countryview Haven property at their session on Thursday. The former county home and grounds was purchased at auction by Dan Mangas of Williamsburg, Indiana.
