West Bloomfield Historical Society
We invite you to join us in learning about and appreciating our community and its place in history. You will be warmly welcomed..... and the demands on your time will be minimal.
West Bloomfield Historical Society will be open for the season in April!
Free public programs the 1st Tuesday of the month.
Monthly open houses on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.
Have a special collection to display or a skill you want to demonstrate at the open house? Call 585-657-7060 with idea.
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!
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.
