    GOSHEN — A mysterious wall painting has been discovered at the historic Hawks Furniture building, which is being transformed into a live-work space for local artists.

    The building at 215 W. Madison St. in Goshen is under construction and had a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday, April 17, to celebrate the renovation. After the groundbreaking at the Hawks Arts and Enterprise Center, a woman pointed out a faded painting depicting four men, potentially wearing soldier uniforms, and a flag near a door on the third floor.

    LaCasa Inc. and DJ Construction are teaming up to convert the north part of the former industrial building into 35 apartments for artists and entrepreneurs. A powerwashing crew recently removed paint from the walls, unveiling the painting underneath. No details were available Friday, April 18, about the painting’s history.
