On July 26, 2009, the official dedication of the Carriage House at the Dr. John Bloomfield Home and Museum took place. It was a good excuse to have a party, too, so the Society hosted its annual Ice Cream Social and Vintage Car Show. The turnout exceeded our most optimistic expectations.

Three generations of descendents of Dr. John Bloomfield were recently in Napoleon to present the Henry County Historical Society with a settee that once belonged to Dr. Bloomfield's daughter, Carrie Bloomfield Yeager. Making the donation were (from left) great-great-great-granddaughter Hannah Tow with her father Brian, Chicago; great-great-grandson John Tow and great-granddaughter Elizabeth Susan Yeager Tow, Falmouth Mass. Also attending was Elizabeth's husband Raymond Tow (right). See more photos of this visit on our Photo Album.
