galleryDo you love Bloomington history, local art, old architecture, or great apps and beverages? If you said yes to any of these, please mark your calendar for a social event with an educational twist.

The Old House Society is partnering with the Area Arts Round Table (both organizations are local not-for-profits) for an evening that starts with food and drinks at the gallery of local artist Herb Eaton followed by a history lecture given there by Bill Kemp (author and librarian/archivist for the McLean County Museum of History). The topic of the lecture and slide presentation will be "The Development, Boom Years, Decline, and Rebirth of a Downtown Block".

The gallery itself is a beautifully renovated building with lots of architectural character and great stories. The social/gallery event starts at 5:30 pm and the lecture starts at 6:45 pm. This event is open to the public, so grab a friend and wind down the week with some food for stomach, brain, and thought.

Suggested donation of $12 at the door. The gallery is located at 411 N. Center St. in downtown Bloomington. There is a large parking deck on the block north of the gallery, or street parking is available.

OHS grant program

The Old House Society has a grant program that is designed to help homeowners in their efforts to repair and rehabilitate their historic homes. To be considered, a project must repair or restore a building in a way that will maintain or add to the home’s historic nature.

Successful grant recipients will receive a grant worth $500 ($250 in salvage warehouse credit and a $250 check from the Old House Society). Applicants agree that if selected they will allow OHS to document and publicize their renovation project.
