Thankfully, a few months ago a generous and preservation-minded developer (Redemption Holdings LLC) has purchased the land on which the house sits, and has sold me the structure (for $2) with the understanding that I move it from the site by the middle of this fall (2018). I love historic homes, and live in one (the Adams-Joy-Snow house) which was moved (in our home's case, back in 1963) - I would like to move the home to a lot I own on the east side of Geneva (keeping the home in its original community) and restore it. I believe that the community will benefit from helping save this historic local building. 100% OF ALL FUNDS RAISED will go directly toward the relocation of the building!
I am a former Princeton Review tutor (ACT, SAT, GRE, math, history, etc.) and I am willing to "donate" a 1.5-hour tutoring session for anyone willing to make a donation of $100 (or more) to this good cause. I just re-took the ACT, scoring a 35 (top 1% nationwide), and have some great advice for high-school-aged folks taking this test, or the SAT. I have perfect scores (36) in both English and Reading. Contact me for details - I live in Geneva! (Any donors who wish to have a handful of square nails from the addition to the house are welcome to them - keep them as a reminder of what you helped to save! Just contact me and I will make sure you receive them)
Thank you so much to all of you who have donated thus far - you are helping to preserve an important local landmark!
