Residence of M. C. Hunter

image number:

P0055054

description:

This is probably the residence of Morton Craig Hunter (1825-1896) which was located at the corner of 11th and Walnut in Bloomington, Indiana. See image P0021197. The home was added on to in later years and for all intents and purposes no longer looked like the home in this image when it was torn down in 1974. The home stood on the east side of Walnut at a point almost exactly east of where 11th Street dead ends at Walnut today (2015) and was set back from the Walnut about twenty yards.
