Save Bon Haven - Advocacy Alert
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Preserving South Carolina
Website: http://www.palmettotrust.org

Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation and the Save Bon Haven Campaign are seeking $250,000 in pledges to save the house from salvage and demolition.

Bon Haven was built in 1884 by John B. Cleveland, Spartanburg, South Carolina's 'first citizen,' and his wife Georgia.  The home is the state's largest Second Empire style home outside of Charleston.  It has been vacant since the late 1990s.  Despite being on the National Historic Registry and having had a trust established to preserve the home and offset any financial burden on future Cleveland descendants, the home found itself in the hands of a salvage company to be sold for architectural parts.

See news article for a most recent update at link below.  Please note however, the article mistakenly refers to the house being rebuilt in Mississippi.  This is not correct.  It will be salvaged and scattered to whomever will buy whatever parts they want.  

The Palmetto Trust and the Save Bon Haven campaign are committed to saving the house from salvage and demolition.
