Stevenson Home in Bloomington

The home today. Porch is gone and window above the front door has been shortened.

In the mid 1980's I was at this house, interviewing Adlai Stevenson II's sister, Elizabeth.

The interview was about the shooting death of Ruth Merwin by Stevenson, in December of 1912.
