The Historic Marbold Farmstead Association (HMFA) is an Illinois Not-For-Profit Corporation. While Articles of Incorporation and By-Laws set forth the specific legal description of goals, HMFA is primarily organized to preserve and promote interest in the history of central Illinois agriculture. The Association plans to acquire, restore and demonstrate the operation of vintage agricultural farmsteads, structures and equipment, as well as to sponsor related educational programs.
HMFA has been approved as a 501(c)(3) organization under the Internal Revenue Code; accordingly, donations are tax-deductible by the donor. The primary activities to date have been to sponsor educational programs which demonstrate the agricultural practices followed at the Marbold Farmstead located in Greenview, Illinois. See “Events” for a summary of past and future activities.
HMFA is working to acquire, and eventually restore, the Marbold Farmstead. The Association has encouraged and monitored the restoration and stabilization work done to-date on the Farmstead by the owners. Contact has been maintained with the current owner of the Marbold Farmstead and with other potential donors in order to facilitate the possible donation of the property to HMFA.
