'16 House Tour a resounding success

This year's "Early Bloomington" Tour of Homes was another sold-out success. Our featured neighborhood for this June's Tour was the East Jefferson / East Washington Street area, which includes some of the land formerly owned by Judge David Davis.

Old House Society feels that it's important to support other local not-for-profit organizations, and in this spirit, will be donating $1,000 of its Tour proceeds to the David Davis Mansion. Visit the Mansion's website to read how its history ties into early Bloomington and Abraham Lincoln.
