Friends host open house at Chinsegut
The Friends of Chinsegut Hill will host an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 7 at Chinsegut Hill, off Snow Memorial Highway, just north of the fork at U.S. 41, north of Brooksville. As part of its "Save the Hill" fundraising efforts, the organization needs to raise $75,000 by May 13 to match a potential private foundation donation that would move management of the property to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. If the group is not successful in raising the money, the future of the state-owned property and its manor house, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, will remain uncertain.
