News from Homeplace on Green River, Kentucky's Outdoor Classroom

COLUMBIA, KY (Tue 24 Jan 2017) - Some good friends have upped the tally for the Homeplace on Green River's effort to raise $5,000 so we can collect a $5,000 matching gift from an anonymous donor.

We are now at $4,020 with a week to go.

The money will be used to provide a permanent protective pavilion for an early 1800s log pen barn donated by the Guynette and Ronnie Sullivan family.

We need help assuring we reach the $5,000 so we can claim the match and save the log barn!

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. Website:
