Bloomington in Hennepin County, Minnesota — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
Bloomington Town Hall
The Town Hall served as a meeting place, church, school, and municipal building until 1964, when it became the Town Hall Museum and headquarters of the Bloomington Historical Society.
The 2008 restoration returned the exterior appearance of the Town Hall to match historic photos and other evidence of its original 1892 character.
