Bloomfield Public Square

Located in Downtown Bloomfield and bordered by Main (SR 54), Franklin, Washington (US 231), and Spring Streets; a public lot was laid out in 1824 as a part of the original plat of Bloomfield.  This property originally housed four log buildings; one on each corner, with one serving as “Court House” located at the northeast corner, thus leaving the central portion as a public square that often held livestock and served as a marketplace and gathering place for public speaking.  Today, the square outlined with large trees remains the focal point of Downtown Bloomfield and along with the 1885 Courthouse, the grounds include the original cast bronze bell from the bell tower, a veteran’s monument, and a large civil war memorial.
