Bloomington Then and Now


The old Central School. The William T. Blair House. The original Showers building. All lost treasures of the Bloomington landscape until now. The new book “Bloomington Then and Now” by Derek and Jennifer Richey presents old Bloomington as it was, as it disappeared and what stands in it’s place now. Inspired by the Richey family’s interest in old abandoned homes, 19th and 20th century architecture and photography, “Bloomington Then and Now” is the culmination of nearly a decade of study and investigation by the Richey’s facebook project “Bloomington Fading”. WFHB correspondent Jennifer Whitaker sat down with the Richey’s to discuss the soon to be released book for this WFHB Feature Exclusive.
