Special, Event Here!
Welcome to the MagicHouse!
Some Formal Spaces...
Built in 1928 by Architect Charles E. Hall, a prominent builder, contractor, and philanthropist of his day, the home stands in the historic Founders Grove Neighborhood of Bloomington. Aside from a showpiece of what his firm could create, Hall made it his family's residence with designs showcasing an attention to detail from a bygone era.
Hall hosted various fundraising events and tours for Bloomington Hospitals and various Chamber of Commerce soirées. He knew what he wanted in a home and worked to ensure that it suited his needs as well as his business stature.
In opening it up to guests and visitors, we seek to celebrate, share and preserve his achievement.
