Movement afoot on Hope Town Square

HOPE, Ind. — In a situation where one thing leads to another, two significant openings will take place in Hope over the next few days.

On Saturday, the town’s new Visitor Information Center will open in a low-key fashion at the Yellow Trail Museum, located at the southwest corner of Jackson and Main streets on the Hope Town Square.

Two days later, a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Hope Wellness Pharmacy – the first drug store to serve Hope in almost 30 years – will get underway at 10 a.m. Monday at 645 Harrison St., across the Square next to the Hope library.

The Columbus Area Visitors Center moved its satellite operation out of the Harrison Street facility known as the Simpson building at the end of December, leaving an opening for the pharmacy to move into.
