FASHERS, Ind. (AP) - A historic central Indiana house will serve as the centerpiece of a new roundabout in a busy retail area. The city of Fishers plans to buy the Morris-Flanagan-Kincaid House from Nickel Plate Arts this summer and move it to a new location on USA Parkway, near IKEA, Portillo's restaurant and The Yard district.

LOGANSPORT, Ind. (AP) - A sculpture dedicated to immigrants will be erected in downtown Logansport. The Logansport Pharos-Tribune reports that the sculpture will be carved out of white Italian marble, depicting a family of luggage-toting immigrants, including a mother, a father and a child. The 12,000 pound sculpture will stand about 13 feet high in Heritage Park. Money for the project was raised through a series of dinners dating back to 2013.

GARY, Ind. (AP) - A century-old train station in northwestern Indiana may get a new tenant after sitting empty for more than 50 years. The Decay Devils arts collective and urban preservationist group has secured a $3,500 grant to help fund a study of the potential rehabilitation of Gary's Union Station. The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that engineering firm Arsee Engineers will assess what's needed to make the building habitable again.

JOHNSON FORK, Ky. (AP) - An Indiana man has been arrested in Kentucky after police found him naked in a stranger's yard declaring he might be Jesus. The Kentucky New Era reports a homeowner called police to report a naked man behind his house. Magoffin County Sheriff's Deputies said they found the man lying in the grass near the home. They said he would not tell them his name, saying he "may be Jesus." He was later identified as 31-year-old Austin Michael Johnson of Indiana.
