Farmstead Museum Open Day Dec. 9

The Hinkle-Garton Farmstead Museum Open Day is Saturday Dec. 9th from 1-4 p.m. Visitation to the 1892 main house during open days is free and open to the public.  In keeping with the holiday spirit, visitors are invited to help trim our Christmas tree, decorate Christmas cookies and join in singing Christmas carols with musicians and singers from Bloomington’s Friday Musicale. A variety of jams and jellies, great for holiday gift-giving, and made from farmstead and locally grown fruit will be available for purchase.

The farmstead, located at 2920 E. 10th Street, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is headquarters to Bloomington Restorations, Inc., an organization committed to preservation of historic properties in Monroe County. The main house and museum are open to the public 1-4 p.m. the last Saturday of most months. For more information, call BRI at 812-336-0909.
