Question: A century ago, instead of playing golf on Bloomington's Lakeside Country Club, what were they doing there?

Answer: Digging holes bigger than just golf holes. The ground where Lakeside is today is so clay-filled, it was the site of a brick-making operation. Many yards of homes in that area are still pocked with brick remnants just below the ground’s surface. It also is why an east-side street is today called Brickyard Drive.
