Columbus newspaper building gets landmark status

A building housing an Indiana newspaper has become one of the youngest structures in the country to be designated a historic landmark.

The 41-year-old Republic building in Columbus is one of 26 sites nationally added to the landmarks list last week. The newspaper said it is the seventh building in Columbus to gain that status.

The Interior Department says the newspaper building is "one of the best examples of the work of Myron Goldsmith."

Goldsmith and former Republic publisher Bob Brown developed the concept for the newspaper plant based on an open design offering full views of the building from the outside.

Other Columbus buildings on the landmarks list include three churches, an adult education center, The Miller House and the former Irwin Union Bank and Trust building.
