Much has been shared about the ground-breaking partnership between the city and Housing Authority with the Old Town Revitalization Company and First United Methodist Church to create the Old Town Community Center at the corner of Atchison Street and Clark Avenue.

Long before the church leased the building to provide the Common Ground Community Center to the neighborhood, the 2 1/2-story brick commercial building was the ambition of a Lincoln University professor.
