BASS MOLLETT HOUSE MEETING
A crowd of about 20 to 25 people gathered for a meeting on the Greenville College Campus Monday night to find out what plans the College has for the 117 year old Bass Mollett house. Sam Garrett from the College said that they are in the data collecting stage at this time. He informed the audience that there were zero dollars in the budget to renovate the old House.
Kathy Brewer commented that approximately 5 years ago funds were started to save the building. "Many donors contributed $100 and there was an auction that raised money to restore the Bass Mollett House, she said. "This could be seed money."
Discussions continued with many offering the idea of getting donations and volunteer labor. Mr. Garrett addressed concerns over safety and health issues pertaining to paint and asbestos. He said the College would like to make every effort to protect the building. At this time Greenville College is open for suggestions as to how to use the House if it was restored. Anyone interested in offering suggestions can email Mr. Sam Garrett at firstname.lastname@example.org. At this time Garrett said the College does not have a clear plan for the building.
