CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (AP) A former Colgate toothpaste factory in southern Indiana is being nominated for inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places.

Jeff Vlach with project consulting firm Beam Longest and Neff says the finalized nomination application for the Clarksville site was submitted to the state last week.

The former Colgate plant has a large clock that's overlooked the Ohio River for nearly 90 years. It's unclear how much of the 55-acre site would be considered part of the national registry if the nomination is approved.

Vlach tells The Courier-Journal of Louisville, Ky., that the property's previous owners had refused to allow access to the property to take the required inventory. But he says the company that bought the site in 2011, Boston Development Group, was open to the idea.
