Supporters of ongoing efforts to save the historic Wilkins House from demolition will meet Wednesday night to learn the status of the project.
A meeting at the Upcountry History Museum will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. to announce donation updates, more events and a permanent location where people hope to move the house.
The Save The Wilkins House Initiative has a goal of raising $360,000 in order to save the historic Augusta Road home, move it to a new property and set up easements that will keep the home from ever being demolished.
The home was built in the late 1800s by local builder Jacob W. Cagle for William Wilkins and his wife Harriet, who bought 23 acres of land along Augusta Street from O.P. Mills in 1876.
In order to save the home, the money needs to be raised by April 15 to move the house. People can sign the petition online or donate to the project here.
