Monroe County History Center

The Monroe County Historical Society welcomes you to beautiful Bloomington located in the rolling hills of Southern Indiana. Our History Center offers both permanent and rotating exhibits throughout the year giving Monroe County residents and visitors of all ages a chance to experience what life in Monroe County was like for diverse people at different times and to connect these stories with our lives today. We also offer a local history/genealogical Research Library and a museum store.


Discardia, a project of the Center for Sustainable Living, will present the 9th annual Trashion ReFashion Runway Show on Sunday April 8, 2018.  Stop by our booth to help us assemble materials for next year’s backdrop.  You can see Trashion designs from past years.  Also, Bring Your Bag Bloomington will be there to share ideas about reusable bags.

Bloominglabs Fundraiser

Bloominglabs (co-host of Makevention) has to move! For the past 3 years we’ve enjoyed our current location which is on the future site of the Switchyard Park. The city is ready to begin making progress on the park which means we’ve received an eviction notice. Thankfully we have found a new location, but now we need to raise funds to support our relocation. We are fundraising for our future home and hope to use Makevention to help. Please see our GoFundMe for more details. Thanks!
