The quest by Homeplace on Green river to raise $5,000 by February 1 to claim an additional $5,000 matching gift has exceeded the goal. A total of $5,520 was given by businesses and individuals, which, together with the matching gift, totals $10,520.

The Homeplace Board thanks the 32 donors for their support. The money will be used to build a protective pavilion over an early 1800's log pen barn donated earlier to Homeplace by Taylor County's Gwynette and Ronnie Sullivan family. The small log barn was disassembled brought to Homeplace and reassembled this past fall.

The construction of the pavilion will begin this month and the $10,000 cost will be covered by the money raised and the $5,000 matching gift. The structure will be such that it can be expanded as money comes available to enclose space for both the log barn and as a place to exhibit early farm equipment and implements. The excess money from the fund drive will be set aside for that purpose.

The Homeplace on Green River Board of Directors was tasked with raising the money in about one month. The success in reaching that goal is because of the many who support the farm's mission to preserve the region's agricultural history and demonstrate modern farming techniques.

Homeplace on Green River, located at 5807 New Columbia Road (KY 55) between Columbia and Campbellsville, is a joint effort of Adair Green and Taylor counties. The farm is open all year for hiking, picnics and other outdoor activities. Family events are scheduled early spring through late fall. Major annual events include a spring festival and plow day (April 22) and a fall heritage festival (September 9). Both offer a variety of family activities including food, exhibits, arts and crafts, rides and lots of animals. Homeplace also hosts wedding and other scheduled group activities. Website:
