Summertime OHS Social

Grab a friend and come check out this beautiful stucco home at 308 Highland in Normal on Friday, August 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Looking out towards Broadview Mansion by the Cedar Crest historic district, this 1908 home with wraparound porch is a great place to unwind for a light social at the end of the week.

Beverages and light hors d'oeuvres will be provided, and every attendee will be eligible to win a raffled $25 LaGondola gift certificate. All proceeds will benefit the Old House Society's Warehouse operations and Residential Grant Program. $8 at the door for OHS members, $10 for non-members (membership forms will be available at the event if you'd like to join OHS that evening).

Hope to see you there!

'16 Tour a success

This year's "Early Bloomington" Tour of Homes was another sold-out success, thanks to all of our Old House Society supporters who faithfully attend our event every year. 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. If you've never been to the David Davis Mansion, it's a gem...please visit the Mansion's website to read how its history ties into early Bloomington and Abraham Lincoln.

See you on next year's Tour!!!
