The complex, listed in the National Register of Historic Places as part of the Goshen Historic District, consists of a series of late nineteenth century and early twentieth century masonry structures located adjacent to the Hydraulic Canal.

The first phase of the project included the rehabilitation of the southern portion of the complex to create 35 apartments with artist studio space within each unit. The remainder of the building was stabilized for later reuse. The project was funded in part by the Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) program, HOME funds, and Indiana’s State Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit.
