Hey there! Thanks for stopping by!

I’m Allissa [Hopkins] Johnson, the newly hired Executive Director for the Bricker-Price Block. Some locals may recognize my name. I was born and raised in Earlham, Iowa, and I’m a 2004 graduate of Earlham High School.

I decided to start this hereblog to keep folksmore informed about what’s going on at the Bricker-Price Block, some history on our charm and state-of-the-art facilities and provide some helpful tips on hosting events.

What is the Bricker-Price Block?

That’s a great question!

In the 1900’s it was host to general stores at the street level and offices on the second floor, but in 2016 it was completely restored to bring activity and vitality to downtown Earlham through a large event space upstairs and a restaurant, the Hare + the Hound downstairs. [More details on the history of the building and the restoration coming to the blog soon. Stay tuned!]
