The Gen. Nathanael Greene Homestead in Coventry, RI has to shell out a couple thousand dollars for a security camera setup because of jackasses who dump their trash there.
It’s happened twice in two months. And we’re not talking a little bit of trash, either. It’s like truckloads of construction and landscaping debris.
If you’d like to contribute some money to help defray the cost of the cameras, click here for contact info.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you probably know that I’m a big fan of Gen. Nathanael Greene. This project is definitely worthy of your support:
The Gen. Nathanael Greene Homestead, a National Historic Landmark in Coventry RI, is a house museum located in Spell Hall, the home built in 1770 by George Washington’s most trusted general and Revolutionary War Hero of the South, Nathanael Greene, once had a beautiful colonial barn.
This barn was torn down when the property was sold out of the family and subdivided in the early 20th century. We are hoping to raise $75,000 to build a replica of the barn on our remaining 11 acres of the original Homestead for use as a classroom, for educational programs and special events. If you would like to help contribute to this project we are gladly accepting donations.
The Gen. Nathanael Greene Homestead is a 501 (c)3 non-profit
