Thomas law office has new owners

Friday, March 9, 2007 9:27 AM CST

A downtown Brazil landmark will have new owners.

For years, John, Amos, David and Andy Thomas used the brick building at the corner of Franklin and National streets as their law offices. They were joined at one time by Ed Pease, who went on to become this district's congressman.

Now, Amos Thomas continues his law practice and is the 44th District State Representative, but John is retired and David and Andy work for the State of Indiana in Indianapolis.

So, the building has been for sale.

It has been sold.

Linda and Ron Harms, owners of Re/Max Homes and Land real estate agency have bought the building for the agency.

The Harms plan to relocate their business to the building at 33 W. National Ave. by April 1.

Meanwhile, the Thomas name will remain on the door: Amos has leased office space from the Harms.

A grand opening time will be announced at a later date.
