Save Green Gables

We are in a huge time crunch.

As of April 15, 2020 the property will be sold for commercial gain, such as a gas station or condo. You are the key to making a difference and saving this national treasure and keeping it out of the landfill.

We are raising money to benefit Green Gables at Historic Riverview Village, so the nonprofit can purchase, save the house and refurbish it as a community center and offer outreach programs for all ages. Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to all of us working to save history.

45147146_1580417857958831_r.jpeg, a partnering nonprofit, heard the situation and offered an in-kind donation of a 34 minute, professionally shot and edited documentary film depicting the past, present and future of the home and land, because they felt so strongly about saving Green Gables.

For every $10 or more donation, will email a link so you can view the documentary in full.
