2nd Annual Limestone Month

Categories: story ideas

Come to Bloomington during June and you can learn more about the limestone industry that has been such a driving force in the area's economy for generations. The 2nd Annual Limestone Month is a joint venture of the Bloomington CVB and the Lawrence County Tourism Commission.  A variety of events celebrating limestone are being planned for the one-month time span.

One of the cornerstones of Limestone Month is the Indiana Limestone Symposium, now in its 14th year. Held on the grounds of the Bybee Stone Company, the Symposium is an opportunity for carvers of all skill levels to learn more about working with limestone.

Other events will be announced in the coming weeks. Watch www.limestonemonth.org for details.
