Victoryville

description:

A note on the back of the print of this image says that Victoryville is three miles south of Bloomington.

Victoryville may have also been known as "Bruner's Village" and/or "Bruner's Courts". The mayor of Bloomington at this time was Loba Bruner.

This site is just north of the Indiana National Guard building at 3880 South Old State Road 37 / Walnut Avenue. The view is from the west looking toward the east. Old Highway 37 in the middle with South Henderson a bit further off in the distance.

When this image is enlarged it is obvious that these building are still under construction as there is still lumber on the ground, no windows, and what appear to be sawhorses still in use.
