      It's FRIDAY, and you know what that means!

      FUN 👏 FACT 👏 FRIDAY! 👏

      Today, the famous Journal-Gazette building on South Clinton Street.

      Originally built in 1871, 🕰️ the Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette building has undergone many changes, from total remodelings in 1928 to renovations in 1982.

      The Journal-Gazette newspaper leased space in the south end of the building in 1908 but later purchased the building to remodel in 1928. 🏗️ They continued to rent their space there until 1958 when they moved to a new facility on West Main Street.

      In 1982, the building was added to the National Register of Historic Places 📜 and it was renovated again to transform the interior into more office spaces.

      Today, the building houses many local business, including Chrzan Law Firm, Edison Electricians, 💡 Brothers Interior Renovation Solutions, and more!

      And it could also be home to your local business as well! Currently, there are many options for available suites, so make sure to call today if you'd like to house your business in a beautiful piece of Fort Wayne history. 🏛️

    9. The old Journal Gazette building at Main and Clinton streets downtown will be the new home of the Allen County Democratic Party headquarters.
      The Allen County Democratic Party’s headquarters soon will return to downtown Fort Wayne after leaving the city’s center more than 30 years ago.
      The organization will move into its new office in the next few weeks, party chair Derek Camp said Friday. The party’s new headquarters will be located on the first floor of the old Journal Gazette Building, 701 S. Clinton St., across from the Allen County Courthouse.
      The county Democratic Party leases part of a building on the south side of Fort Wayne from Bricklayers Local 4, at 7301 Decatur Road. That location is “not very centralized or visible,” Camp said.
