Farmer House Museum
Mary Ellen and Ed Farmer left their historic 1869 residence and its contents to the Bloomington community in 1999, to be used to promote historic preservation and cultural memory. The collection is varied and unique, ranging from the late nineteenth Century to the late twentieth Century. Items include clothing, family photographs, school memorabilia, letters, household items, pottery and furniture. There is a special focus on the years 1930-1950, a time of coming of age for the Farmers themselves and for the country. The museum is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-3pm. No admission charged.
