Overview


Bloomfield, a microcosm of American history, has seen multiple waves of immigration from various countries, as well as industrial growth throughout its history. It began as the John Conrad Winebiddle Plantation, providing beef for the soldiers fighting the Revolutionary War at Fort Pitt. Gen. George Washington referred to Bloomfield as the "high ground." Bloomfield was distinctively of German ethnicity for 100 years, and the Protestant Irish followed after the Civil War. Italians immigrated before World War I and well into the 1960s. The blending of these nationalities has produced a warm and friendly neighborhood that is launching into the 21st century. Bloomfield is a tribute to those who have cared for and loved their neighborhood.
