Cotton’s Village Inn 401 N. Main St., Bloomington
Melton “Cotton” McNabney and his wife Millie took over management of this downtown eatery in 1948. Located in the basement of the three-story building on the northeast corner of Main and Monroe streets, some old-timers might remember Millie McNabney’s ham loaf, creamed chicken pie, Swiss steak and pan gravy, and other delectable specials. With the exception of a few years in the early 1960s, the McNabneys ran this downtown landmark until 1971. It closed under different management a few years later.
