Brinton House Bistro Bonanza

GOAL:  12        SOLD: 6


We want to pull up a chair and relax with our neighbors as we chat on the porch of the

Wm. P. Brinton House on Green St.

We can't pull up a chair yet because the porch is in need of repair.  We are trying to raise money to repair the porch and provide seating by selling 12 of these beautiful bistro sets.

When you purchase a bistro set, you will be memorialized as the donor.

Each set is $500.00
