David Matthew Procaccini  COVENTRY, RI
The Gen. Nathanael Greene Homestead, a National Historic Landmark  in Coventry RI, is a house museum located in Spell Hall, the home built in 1770 by George Washington's most trusted general and Revolutionary War Hero of the South, Nathanael Greene. The Homestead once had a beautiful colonial barn and other structures including a large three forge trip-hammer foundry. All of these out- buildings have since been torn down, starting withthe forge in the mid 18th century.

 The last building removed was the barn. This barn  was torn down when the property was sold out of the family and subdivided in the early 20th century.  We are hoping to raise $75,000 to build a replica of the barn on our remaining 11 acres of the original Homestead for use as a classroom , for educational programs and special events. If you would like to help contribute to this project we are gladly accepting donations.

 The Gen. Nathanael Greene Homestead is a 501 (c)3 non=profit

This is a great cause. The Greene family was the best thing that ever happened to Rhode Island. They deserve (not a term I use lightly) recognition and honoring, no doubt. Please join me in supporting this effort.

I visited the Nathaniel Greene house a few years ago and was impressed with the good things you all were doing with so little. Thanks for preserving history.
