Its Maple Syrup Season at the Farmstead

Bloomington Restorations, Inc. invites you to the monthly opening of the Hinkle-Garton Farmstead on Saturday, January 27, 2018, from 1-4 p.m. Come watch the tapping of the historic Sugar Maple trees and learn a bit about the sugaring process.

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.
