Tarkington Tower History 

T

arkington Tower is the city’s first high-rise condominium.  The building developer Jack Weldon had persuaded a group of investors to build the 16-story tower as a “swanky” apartment community in 1966.  It was converted into a condominium complex in 1979.  Mrs. Weldon, Jean, worked with a New York City architect to give the building “an elegant look.”  The construction firm also built Clowes Memorial Hall at nearby Butler University.
