Washington County Community Foundation Works to Preserve Historic Brownlee House

Wednesday, October 7, 2015

The Samuel T. Brownlee House has been described by one local historian as “one of the best preserved and maintained formal Georgian-Greek Revival houses in Washington County.”  Built in 1848 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the building was donated to Washington County Community Foundation (WCCF) in 2013 by William and Saundra Stout.   Now WCCF, which has relocated its offices to the second floor of the historic building, is the in process of rehabilitating the rest of the structure for use as a Scotch-Irish house museum and training center.  A generous grant of $100,000 just confirmed by the Allegheny Foundation will support operating expenses while WCCF raises an additional $500,000 to support the house’s operating costs in perpetuity.
