1787 Seth Babb Homestead

$1,650 of $3,350 goal

After a 14 year painstaking restoration process the 1787 Seth Babb Homestead is ready to open to the Public in Greeneville, Tennessee to be used as a Teaching tool of the life of Pioneers. Built just 2 years after the county was formed and 2 years before the Constitution was ratified, this 2 story home is a rare treasure. The interior is ready but funding is needed to purchase and install a new stone skirt around the building and proper entrances to the front and back door that will protect the building and finish it completely.

If online donations aren't your thing, you can also send a check made payable to the Babb Family Association to 3723 Northview Ln, Dallas, TX 75229

We still have a ways to go to consume all of the matching funds, so please keep giving.

I have great news! We have received $1000 in donations towards the project via US Mail!

Additionally, I am proud to announce a Challenge Matching Gift just in time for Giving Tuesday (Nov 27). For every dollar you donate/pledge our donor will match it up to $2500.

Please help us fulfill this gift and your money will go twice as far.

We have received an offline donation of $300 towards our project. As there is no way to increase the amount received through this site, I have reduced the amount needed to achieve our goal.
