The Samuel Brownlee House, which was built in 1848, is on the National Register of Historic Places. It was described by a local historian as a "jewel in the preservation crown of Washington County" and by a regional historian as "one of the best preserved and well maintained formal Georgian-Greek Revival Houses in Washington County."
The Community Foundation's ultimate goal for the building is to create a multi-purpose facility that would include Scotch-Irish Heritage Rooms, an educational facility, and offices for the Foundation. But before the Brownlee House may be opened to the public or for any use, repairs are necessary.
Through this section of the website, you have an opportunity to share in the rehabilitation process and watch this beautiful historic home return to its former glory.
