Talk:Topolgus Building

From Bloomingpedia

Topolgus Family

This is interesting, why would the building be called the Topolgus building if not to be named after someone? There is no listing for anyone named Topolgus in the 1830 or 1850 census , but there is still at least one Topolgus family around. I kinda know Dr. James Topolgus and that his father was also a doctor in town. I always suspected that maybe his family has been in Bloomington for a long time. I didn't know how old the building was until tonight. That's quite old. I wonder if its the oldest building in Bloomington. -- Mark 23:49, 1 September 2007 (EDT)

There is a reference on the University High School mailing list: i remember dr. george (poolitsan) as a big friendly guy, and good doctor, in with dr. topolgus in an 1870's-ish brick house on north walnut or college. Also a nice obituary of the elder Dr. Topolgus at the H-T, here. --Benfulton 22:32, 2 September 2007 (EDT)
