Built in 1869, the Vrooman Mansion was originally a 17-room red brick Italianate-style home designed by G.W. Bunting. By 1900, the home had undergone extensive remodeling, virtually doubling its size. The redesign eradicated nearly every vestige of the original Italianate home, turning it into a structure that has been compared to the officer's quarters at West Point. Restyling the mansion to its present form, architect Arthur Pillsbury created what is considered now to be a conservative interpretation of Romanesque style. Every effort has been made to retain the mansion's authentic décor and ambience.
Now a Bloomington, Illinois, bed and breakfast inn, the Vrooman Mansion caters to guests' needs as it offers a quiet Old World charm and luxurious elegance. The luxurious common areas are suitable for weekend getaways and special events.
