BREMEN â€” Within the next year, two local landmarks could be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Working with Bremen historian RT Henke, Plymouth architect and preservationist Kurt Garner hopes to secure the designation for the Bremen Depot and the town's water storage standpipe.
The honor comes with potential financial benefits.
"Being on the registry helps you in getting grants and so forth for future projects," Henke said. "In a lot of cases it gives you points, because it is an important consideration. This really is a good thing to do."

LAKEVILLE â€” The first time for an event can be the toughest, but the elements may have provided an even tougher obstacle to Newton Parkâ€™s Snoccer event this weekend.
â€śWe had people asking us if we knew how tough it was to kick a ball in the snow â€”Â especially when it just stopped right where you kicked it,â€ť said Irish Saunders of Hoosier Tire, one of the eventâ€™s organizers. â€śWe ended up cutting down the time for a half to 15 minutes because it was so tough, but everybody had a great time and it was a great event.â€ť
