PRESERVE TEXAS HISTORY: Restore the Moody Farm House
Help us save an important relic of Texas history: The Moody Farm House.
The one-story house, once owned by the family of notable Texas Gov. Dan Moody, has just been moved from a site near Hutto where its long-term future was endangered, after years of neglect. The cute 1880s Victorian structure is being added to our Sprinkle Corner village, and will eventually join other notable architectural gems in a residential area just off the town square.
Watch the move on the video above, another save by the grassroots preservation volunteers at Pioneer Farms.
Help us preserve this more than 130-year-old structure to house history exhibits that will allow our 50,000-plus annual visitors to see and feel what life was like in Central Texas in the 19th century, like no other museum in region.
Consider a gift to our Momentum Fund to help get the Moody Farm House back in sparking shape. Any amount counts. Pitch in now so we can get this important project underway quickly.
Our goal: $80,000 to get the historic house back to its original grandeur, including $10,000 to complete the exterior restoration.
We stretch every dollar given more than twice its amount, though in-kind donations and with volunteer labor. All contributions are fully tax-deductible and donors are recognized on site and in our publications, in what can be a valuable audience for businesses. Benefits for sponsoring businesses can be seen here.
