TO AMEND TITLE 8 OF THE BLOOMINGTON MUNICIPAL CODE, ENTITLED "HISTORIC PRESERVATION AND PROTECTION" TO ESTABLISH A HISTORIC DISTRICT Re: The Thomas Smith House Historic District

This ordinance amends Chapter 8.20 of the Bloomington Municipal Code entitled "List of Designated Historic and Conservation Districts" in order to designate "The Thomas Smith House", parcel number 53-08-03-400-008.001-009, located at 1326 South Pickwick Place, City of Bloomington, Monroe County, Indiana, as a historic district. Built in 1828, The Thomas Smith House is one the earliest examples of the I-House form in Bloomington. The home is only one of a handful of Covenanter brick farmhouses from the early settlement period of Bloomington that still stand and it maintains a high level of historic integrity due to the unaltered state of the original portion of the house. The house is associated with Thomas Smith, a member of the early Covenanter Church in Bloomington, a philanthropist, and a purported conductor on the Underground Railroad.
