Holiday Party
Tuesday, December 1, 5 - 7:30 pm
Vrooman Mansion, 701 E. Taylor Street in Bloomington, IL

Kick off the upcoming winter season at a holiday party with the Old House Society! This year we'll be socializing at Vrooman Mansion, which will be in full decor for the holidays. Complimentary food and beverages will be served.

You may ask, "Why are we at Vrooman for the holidays instead of there in February for the annual lecture event?". This year we're moving our special educational event to a different historic location.

An announcement will be made at the holiday party revealing our February event location and presentation topic (Bill Kemp from the McLean County Museum of History will again be our featured speaker). Join us at Vrooman and be the first to hear the news!

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.
