The Seneca who occupied the West Bloomfield land before the coming of the white man had constructed three villages in the area according to tradition. They located one on Fort Hill along Honeoye creek. Hamilton Hopkins later owned a farm there in what settlers called factory Hollow.

Don’t forget our open evenings when you can tour our collections or just join in a chat about town history.  Families – we hope you will bring your children around to learn more about the people, the achievements, and the inventions that have made West Bloomfield such a unique place.  You are always welcome!

History

Youth Fund
 We also have a Youth Fund for young people who are working on a civic or historical project that benefits any area of the Town of West Bloomfield.  We invite members of Scouts, church youth groups, 4-H, school classes, and others to apply for a donation if they need funding help for their project.  For more information call (585) 624-7796.
