Currently transforming a historic house (built 1850) into a museum; house owned by one family for 127 years. The Mitchell Young Anderson family. Born as slaves, once free, became skilled workers, made enough money to buy property built some houses, bought houses like this house which they used as a boarding house.
I'm looking to raise funds to renovate the house.
