Save the Kelley Farm sign now

This is an online petition to gain momentum on saving the last remaining farm in Bloomington, MN.

Just south and east of the Mall of America, on East Shakopee Road, sits the 60-acre remainder of the James E. Kelley estate, aka Spruce Shadows Farm Historic District. Determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places by the State Historic Preservation Office, the farm sits an historical and ecological anomaly just south of the north-south runway of the MinneapolisSt. Paul International Airport, which opened in late October 2005.

The farm occupies a picturesque site on the north bluff of the Minnesota River. The Colonial Revival house, clad in locally quarried limestone, overlooks the Minnesota River to the south. Impressive stone chimneys with brick trim rise from the north and west sides of the house, and similar brick detailing highlights the many windows that punctuate the south facade.

    I visited this farm numerous times growing up (and almost had my wedding there). It is such a beautiful place and I would hate to see a development on it.
