The Marbold Farmstead has undergone many changes in over 100 years. Three stages of the home at the Marbold Farmstead are shown below.
As you can see in the pictures above we have come all long way, but lots of renovation still needs to be done. Thanks to all our Donors for helping fund our restoration efforts. The Historic Marbold Farmstead Association (HMFA) purchased the Farmstead in 2011 and has focused on various restoration projects. For pictures and descriptions of Finished Renovations Click Here.
February 14th 2019 HMFA announced our public Capital Campaign “The Next Chapter”, to support ongoing restoration of the farmstead. The public Capital Campaign is to raise funds for exterior masonry and wood work, dormer/window/door repair, and interior mechanical systems: HVAC, electrical, and plumbing. In consultation with an architect we realized that without these improvements any interior work would just deteriorate again.
As of 12/09/2019 we are currently rebuilding the conservatory on the south side of the house. There are 24 windows and one door to be re-installed in the conservatory, to complete the restoration process for this grand addition. The association is looking for 25 donors to commit $500 per window or door. One can donate via the website: www.historic-marbold-farmstead.org, using the “Donate” button or by mailing a check to HMFA, P.O. Box 438, Greenview, IL, 62642, stating “for window restoration.” More detail can be found at In the News.
THANK YOU to all of our supporters for making all this restoration possible.
