Evangelical Group Opens Educational Facility At Former Howe Military Academy
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — An evangelical organization is opening a faith-based educational facility at a Indiana location that was once a military academy. The Journal Gazette reported Wednesday that the New York-based World Olivet Assembly announced it had bought the 63-acre land in LaGrange County last week. The 135-year-old Howe Military Academy says it was closing last year due to budget shortfalls, rising costs and declining enrollment. Terms of the sale were not immediately available, but the Associated Press reported last July that the campus was listed at $4 million.
