Help PGI continue our mission to provide advocacy, connection, and education to those who want to protect and promote the historic buildings, and neighborhoods that give our community character and life. We receive no state or city funding so the support we receive from individuals and businesses is vital to our mission.

We are a member-centric organization. We have fun together, learn together and work together to promote preservation in our community. All members enjoy advance notice of educational programs, lectures, and special events, two free tickets to tour Blandwood Mansion, a 10% discount in the Blandwood Museum shop and our monthly newsletter LandmarksOnline. Heritage Leader and above members receive an invitation for two to the Blandwood Holiday celebration. Landmark Leaders and higher are invited to schedule an after-hours Wine and Candlelight tour of Blandwood for a group of up to 20!

We offer many ways you can help.  Donate the way that works for you.

One-Year Membership.  Make a single donation online by credit card or bank draft and become a member of Preservation Greensboro for one year.  We’ll remind you when your membership expires so that you can renew.

Sustainer Membership.  Maybe you prefer to sign up for monthly donations by credit card or bank draft so that you can divide your contribution into smaller bites and put your contributions on automatic.  Sustainers receive the full benefits of membership based on the amount of the projected total annual contribution.  We love Sustainers because Sustainers provide steady, predictable income that makes it easier for us to budget.  You can change or cancel your donation at any time by calling our office.

General Contribution.  Make a single donation in addition to or instead of membership.  perhaps you want to honor a friend or commemorate a special occasion without becoming a member or you are a member who wants to give a little extra.

Send us a check.  We make online donations safe and easy, but you can always mail us a check if you prefer.  Make your check payable to Preservation Greensboro and mail it to P.O. Box 13136, Greensboro, NC 27415.  Click the button to find a printable form to include with your check.

Hannah Jones. Hannah Jones lived at Blandwood in the nineteenth century, both as an enslaved worker and a freedwoman. We know her name because Ann Eliza Lindsay Morehead recognized Hannah in her will (1868) with some bequests from her estate. Hannah, her husband Samuel, and their two children John and Ann remained living at Blandwood for 10 years after the end of the Civil War.

Much of Hannah’s outdoor work, including laundry and food preparation, was likely done in what we now recognize as the kitchen garden. It would have been a swept dirt yard during this time, but since Chip Callaway designed the space in 1985, it has been a lovely flowering garden. Today we are working to commemorate Hannah by dedicating this beautiful garden in her memory.

Our goal of $1,000 will cover the cost of the mounted 12×18 sign. Join our local crowd-sourcing campaign to fund this acknowledgment of Hannah, and her story at Blandwood is easy. Go to our Donate Page, click General Contribution, and Dedicate a Gift to Hannah.
