SDI, Community Foundation grant money toward Headwaters Junction study

The effort to create a combined railroad and riverfront attraction gained traction this summer with the donation of $15,000 from Steel Dynamics and $26,000 from the Fort Wayne Community Foundation.

The Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society has received a $15,000 donation from Fort Wayne’s Steel Dynamics to put toward a new marketing and feasibility study of its proposed Headwaters Junction riverfront attraction.

The study will help outline the project costs, financial projections, ridership and attendance, and author a business plan for the attraction.

“We are pleased to be able to support this transformational project,” said Chris Rupp, board chairperson of the Community Foundation.
