    Purdue University Fountain in Engineering Mall   The Purdue Engineering Mall Fountain is a notable landmark on the West Lafayette Campus of Purdue University.  The Executive Office and various engineering and physics buildings encase the Engineering Mall and the fountain is the center piece.  It is a very popular spot for recent high school and Purdue graduates to have their pictures taken. The Elliot Hall of Music is very close and the site for graduations for Harrison and McCutcheon High Schools and of course, Purdue University.  The Elliot Hall of Music seats around 6,000 people so it is a perfect graduation venue so all those relatives can attend. When not being used as a backdrop for graduation pictures the Engineering Mall Fountain at Purdue is very popular in the hot and humi...

    Purdue University Bell Tower    The Purdue University Bell Tower is in the heart of the Purdue Campus next to world famous Elliot Hall of Music.  It is actually a recent landmark as it was constructed in 1995 as a tribute to the tower at Heavilon Hall that was destroyed by fire around 1895.  As a tribute to that former landmark the Purdue Bell Tower houses four bells that were in the former Heavilon Hall Tower.  I must admit I do not have good memories of Heavilon Hall while earning my two degrees at Purdue University as it was where I had to attend by English and literature classes.   The Purdue Bell Tower is one of the two most popular spots on campus to take graduation photos and students usually stand under the walk through below the tower for their "I graduated from Purdue!" ph...

    Proposed Apartment Building south of Chauncey Square in West Lafayette by Purdue University.   There may be more new apartments for incoming Purdue University students in the Fall of 2015 if a plan to develop a new apartment complex between Salisbury and Littleton Streets is approved by Area Plan and the West Lafayette City Council later this summer.  The developer is planning a 46 unit apartment building with a combination of one, three, and four bedroom apartments for a total of 75 bedrooms.  Parking space is always a key issue when gaining final approval by Area Plan and the West Lafayette City Council.

Tippecanoe, and what's there to do?                                 Operation Skywatch Tower       Tippecanoe County in the Greater Lafayette area contains a relic from the Cold War Era located in the old hamlet of Cairo, about 6 miles North of West Lafayette.     This now, abandoned tower was contructed in 1952 during the height of the Korean War.     Can you guess what it was used for?           Tippecanoe County and the Greater Lafayette, Indiana area is between Chicago and Indianapolis.  The skywatch tower was built as a primitive early warning system if the Korean War escalated into a global war between the United States and the Soviet Union. The Germans formulated a plan that was never implemented during World War II to bomb 19 American cities and Indianapolis was on the target li...

    Tippecanoe, and Meijer TWO     Meijer just opened its SECOND  superstore in the Greater Lafayette area of Tippecanoe County in West Lafayette at the intersection of U.S. Highways 52 West and 231 North.   The original Meijer Superstore is off  Highway 26 East in Lafayette just east of Interstate 65.  The grocery store and home store are open 24 hours a day as well as the Meijer gas station.   It is unlikely that shopping earnestly at the second Meijer store in West Lafayette, Tippecanoe County will propel you to THE WHITE HOUSE,  but the slogan TIPPECANOE and Tyler Too  worked very well for William Henry Harrison in the 1840 Presidential Election.   We can help you find a white house for sale here in West Lafayette, but it won't be as large or lavish as the one at 1600 Pennsylvania A...
