No hope of reopening the Presbyterian Community Center in Smoketown
Any hope of reopening the shuttered Presbyterian Community Center — an institution for 115 years in Smoketown — appears to be dashed.
The board of the nonprofit center at 701 S. Hancock St. — which abruptly suspended operations in late August because of financial problems — has decided to shut it down for good at the end of next month, and the property will be sold.
The related Presbyterian Child Development Center, which had continued to operate in an adjacent building at 630 Finzer St., also will close and that building will be sold.
“We don’t want to close it, but we don’t really have any choice,” Grover Potts, the center’s board president, said Wednesday.
