Fishers groups work to save the historic Kincaid House

FISHERS, Ind. (WISH) – Groups are working to save the Kincaid House on 106th street in Fishers.

Developer Thompson Thrift has plans to develop the land into a mixed-use business and development center.

But the groups, including the Noblesville Preservation Alliance say it’s too important to give up.

“Its one of a few houses like that in Fishers or even in Hamilton County,” said Mike Corbett who is the Treasurer of the group.

“There aren’t that many structures that look like that, these old farmhouses that are made out of brick,” Corbett said

The house was built back in the 1860’s and up until last year it was owned by the Kincaid family. That was when Thompson Thrift sold. The commercial developer is working with the groups to save the house.

One of the plans is to pick the home up and move it to another part of town.

“Even though it’s a huge brick structure that weighs tons, it is possible to move them. And if we can find the right location for it, and possibly the right use for it, I don’t think its going to be any problem getting it done,” said Corbett
