A Taste of Bloomington, Indiana

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT BLOOMINGTON?

  1. Bloomington is a city in and the county seat of Monroe County in the southern region of the U.S. state of Indiana. According to the Monroe County History Center, Bloomington is known as the "Gateway to Scenic Southern Indiana." The city was established in 1818 by a group of settlers from Kentucky, Tennessee, the Carolinas and Virginia who were so impressed with "a haven of blooms" that they called it Bloomington. The population was 80,405 at the 2010 census.

  2. The median income for a household in the city was $25,377, and the median income for a family was $50,054.

  3. Bloomington is home to several professional and amateur theater companies, among the most notable are: the Indiana University Dept. of Theatre & Drama; Cardinal Stage Company; the Bloomington Playwrights Project; Theatre of the People; and the Indiana University Auditorium, which is a 3,000-seat performing arts venue which brings in national tours of musicals, plays and other live entertainment.

  4. Locally, the Bloomington Community Farmers' Market operates at city hall on Saturday mornings, April through October. The market gives the city a chance to buy, sell, and trade goods. Another place to pick up unique items is Fountain Square Mall. This mini mall is a historical landmark because it still has bricks from the original building structure. The Square also consists of Buskirk Chumley Theater, the Monroe County Court House, many locally owned and operated local restaurants, nightclubs and businesses, as well as several churches. Due to building constraints placed on the area in around the College Mall by the city council, most of the retail expansion in the last decade, has been on the west side of Bloomington including a Super Wal Mart, several strip malls and many national chain restaurants. The majority of the downtown restaurants are locally owned and many are ethnic in nature.
