Once it’s Gone, it’s Gone Forever.
Do we really need another gas station or river front condos? You are the key to making a difference and saving this national treasure and keeping it out of the landfill. Green Gables is listed on the National Registry, as a historical landmark but it’s still at a huge risk of being torn down for commercial gain.
We are raising money to benefit Green Gables at Historic Riverview Village, so the nonprofit can purchase, save the house and refurbish it, and run it as a community center, living museum and offer outreach and educational programs for all ages. The surrounding 1.15 acres of green space, with 100+ yr old trees, on the river, is also at risk of destruction.
All donations will help make an impact. Thank you for your contribution to this cause that means so much to all of us working to save history.
www.bUneke.org, a partnering nonprofit, heard the situation and offered an in-kind donation of a 34 minute, professionally shot and edited documentary film depicting the past, present and future of the home and land, because they felt so strongly about saving Green Gables. Link below.
