Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry today joined neighborhood leaders in dedicating the Renaissance Pointe Urban Farm, 2518 Winter St.
The project includes the complete rehabilitation of former fire station 9, which was retired as a fire house in the 1950s because it could not accommodate large, modern fire trucks. A new heating and ventilation system, refurbished windows and state-of-the-art commercial kitchen have been installed in the fire house.
