The Friends of Chinsegut Hill received a State of Florida, Division of Historical Resources grant in order to continue the restoration of the 1852 built manor house.
The house needed historically accurate lighting (47 total), window hardware (for 67 windows) and floor vent covers to match the heart pine flooring on the first floor.
As part of the grant requirements, a cash match of $4133.25 is needed. Any amount donated will help to fulfill this need.
You can mail checks or stop by the Manor House daily between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. The contact information is:
