Former Rescue Mission building goes down, green space take the space

Evansville Rescue Mission's former men's shelter is being razed and turned into a green space. The Evansville-Vanderburgh Public Library System owns the building at 300 SE Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and says the demolition will take approximately three weeks. Once the shelter is gone, grass and limited landscaping will be planted. In the future, the library is considering adding a walking path, a rain garden, or an exhibition garden to the site.
