Green Lawn Abbey

About the Association

The Green Lawn Abbey Preservation Association, frequently referred to as the Friends of Green Lawn Abbey, is made up of volunteers who give of their time and talents or donors who provide financial support to see this grand facility restored.  We invite civic-minded individuals who can help us either physically or financially to consider becoming a Friend of Green Lawn Abbey.

At this time our needs include:

  • Cleaning the interior of the building
  • Yard clean-up and maintenance
  • Graphic design
  • Researching and gathering histories of Abbey “residents”
  • Writing articles and newsletters
  • Fund-raising
  • Re-enacting
  • Event planning and assistance
  • Financial support
