June is #LimestoneMonth here in Bloomington, and we'll be celebrating throughout the month with historic #limestone images from the university and surrounding area.
If you've been to the @IUBloomington campus, the limestone architecture is kind of hard to miss. Maxwell Hall, constructed in 1890, is one of the oldest buildings on the Bloomington campus and housed the university's library until 1907. It also features some of the more ornate limestone features that you'll see on campus, including scroll details, lettering, gargoyles, and other carvings. Flip through to see more!
