About Preservation Bloomfield

Preservation Bloomfield is a non-profit, all-volunteer community organization formed to preserve and protect two historically-relevant homes in Bloomfield, Michigan.

Homes Worth Saving

These modest mid-1800's family homes are examples of early architecture by settlers in Bloomfield. They were separately relocated to the Charles L. Bowers School Farm in 2008. This idyllic setting on public school property and working farm is nestled in the heart of Oakland County convenient to I-75.
