The Colored School Historical Marker Rededication
October 7 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pmFree
The first school for African American children in Bloomington was on this location, at 6th and Washington in Bloomington, Indiana. The Colored School was torn down to make room for the current structure, which was built as a Carnegie Library. The Monroe County History Center now occupies this beautiful limestone building. The Colored School Marker was damaged last year. Through Donors and the help of volunteers, the sign is repaired and will be rededicated on October 7th at 3:30 pm. Join us for the ceremony and light refreshments.
