Bloom Homestead has a unique and diverse history.
The Farmhouse. Known as the Houghton-Hassell house, it was built in 1870 by one of the largest landowners in the region — a Mr. Haughton. The property was then purchased in 1890 by a Mr. Hassell, who was the farm manager of a large nearby estate, Greenfield. He added the portico to the front of the Farmhouse to make it look more like the Greenfield farmhouse, plus he added the back section of the current house.
