Save the Mother Goose House

The Mother Goose house has been a part of Eastern Kentucky since being built in 1940.  Anyone that has ever lived in or visited the area has stories about the Goose house.  Over the years it has held many roles in the Hazard area. It has been a home to many people, been an attraction seen by people all over the world, been featured on many television shows such as HGTV and PBS to name a few, and now is a bed and breakfast with tours offered to allow the public to be able to experience the house that they have seen and admired for years. The house has always been in my family and we have taken care of the aging building for many years but recently the head of the goose has gotten worse and will require the head and neck to be reconstructed. This is due to the head moving off the foundation despite several attempts to stabilize it. The head and neck now has several large holes and is leaking causing further damage to the structure. If the repairs aren’t done soon the damage will eventually destroy the structure and will have to be torn down due to safety issues. I am asking for anyone that can to please help us raise the money to repair the structure that means so much to the areas and its people. All the donations will go to reconstruct and stabilize the structure and to re-roof and shingle the Goose. This will ensure that this attraction and part of history will stay part of Eastern Kentucky for our future kids and grandkids to enjoy!  Thanks for any help you can offer
