Washington County, Utah
The early community of Bloomington was settled as a farming area by Mormon Pioneers along the Virgin River south of St. George. After many years of struggling with the flooding river most of its inhabitants left and it was a ghost town and just a few residents such as the Jones family lived there and the Larsen family and others running cattle/sheep operations in the area.
In 1960 a planned community was developed in Bloomington with a country club/golf course, condominiums and neighborhood housing. Because of bankruptcy problems the town was never incorporated and Bloomington is now annexed to the city of St. George and is not a town of itself but a part of the city of St. George.
