Bloomington Cemetery Vault

From: Sun, Jan 1, 1888
To: Fri, Dec 31, 1920

The Bloomington Cemetery Vault is a carefully preserved piece of McLean County history.  It is a large gray stone structure with 1888 deeply engraved on it’s front.  Before the day of mechanical digging equipment, the vault was used to store remains in the winter months when the frozen ground was too hard to dig. The vault is designed to hold 6 caskets, but large enough to accommodate several more if it was needed.  Depending on how harsh the winter was, cemetery grounds crews could have a big job on their hands come spring.
