Bloomington's farmstead, this property is the core of what was once a much larger farm, settled in the mid-1800s. The property includes the main farmhouse, a Queen Anne style home built in 1892, several outbuildings and a second house, built around 1910. The landscape is also an important historical resource, as are household and farming artifacts and materials representing three generations of Hinkle and Garton families. Operated by Bloomington Restorations, Inc. (BRI), a private, non-profit membership organization for historic preservation, the farmstead serves as an educational resource, hosting special events, exhibits and programs throughout the year.
