It's time for an Old House Society “Wine and Cheese” Event!

Grab a friend and unwind with a few glasses of wine, great appetizers, and a tour of a fabulous 1896 Victorian home. If you like stained glass and beautiful woodwork, 404 W. Seminary Ave. in Bloomington will appeal to your “old house” senses.

This event will be held on Friday, Sept. 18 from 5-7 p.m., with a $10 donation benefiting the Old House Society payable at the door. All “Wine and Cheese” guests will be entered into a raffle for a $25 gift certificate to Beningo’s Italian Restaurant (need not remain present the whole time to win).

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.
