GALVESTON, IN – Pride Investment Partners, a real estate and private equity investment company based in Greenfield, Indiana, recently donated land and a building worth nearly $50,000 to the town of Galveston.

The site, at 306 S. California Street in Galveston, contains .3 acres of land and a building measuring 3,100 square feet, according to Keith White, partner with the company. Pride Investment Partners owned the land through the acquisition of the Red Barn gas station chain in central and northern Indiana – when the GasAmerica gas stations were in operation, he said.

“That particular store was too close to one of our newer GasAmerica locations,” he said. “Rather than converting Red Barn into another GasAmerica, as a company we decided it made the most sense to close this location altogether. So, we rented it to the town, who utilized it for its police and town hall. We are grateful to be able to turn over ownership of this land to the city for their continued use.”

Galveston Town Council President Wes Hull said the building has been used as the police department for some 8 years and as the town hall for 5 years. He said the previous lease had been a good deal, and now that the town owns the building, leaders look forward to keeping their departments there for years to come.

“We got the deed this month,” he said. “It’s like a Christmas present for the town.”

Galveston is a town in Cass County, with a population of about 1,226 according to the 2019 United States Census, and is located in north central Indiana.
