News from Homeplace on Green River, Kentucky's Outdoor Classroom
Thanks to some generous folks who are helping Homeplace on Green River with its fund drive, we are now at $3,850 towards our $5,000 goal.
It's good to know there are folks out there who believe it's important that we preserve historical examples of our farming for futures generations.
To receive a $5,000 match, we need to raise an additional $1,150 by February 1, 2017.
The $5,000 we hope to raise and the $5,000 match will be used to build a pavilion to protect an early 1800s log pen donated to Homeplace.
When pioneers came to Adair County one of their first concerns was protecting their animals.
Home place is fortunate to have a very early example of one of these barns.

Homeplace on Green River farm, 5807 New Columbia Road, Campellsville, KY was first settled in 1803, and is being restored and preserved as a reminder to all of the significance of agriculture to our area. It is a joint effort by Adair, Green and Taylor counties and has been recognized by the Kentucky Senate as "Kentucky's Outdoor Classroom." Most of the work is being done by volunteers.
