Friends of Greenmead

The Friends for the Development of Greenmead was established in 1978 as a non-profit organization. It was created to raise funds for the development and restoration of Greenmead Historical Park. 

Most recently, the Friends donated $50,000 towards the restoration of the Greenhouse and $7,000 towards the restoration of the Newburg Church’s east stained glass windows.
