Help make Tom Petty's childhood home a museum

For now, the Foundation has paused the fundraising effort in light of the Petty family's direct involvement. Updates will be posted at http://www.gmhfi.org/tph/

I was a bit surprised that the estate wouldn't want to run this for such a low buy in price.  Hopefully it proceeds without drama in light of the legal disputes with the music side of things... :(

Help Preserve the Petty House

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to stop by and support the effort to purchase and preserve the Petty Family Home and Tom's legacy. At this time Kevin Beauchamp, the contract holder, has exited his agreement with the Gainesville Music History Foundation Inc. by offering to give his rights to purchase the Petty Family Home to the Petty Family, which at this time does not involve our Foundation. If the Petty family wishes to purchase the home we are in favor of that and support their buying it. Things may change moving forward. If so, we will make an announcement. We had agreed to provide the $20,000 deposit due on the contract this Thursday and that is now on hold until we hear what transpires. So in the mean time we have paused the donation campaign. We will contact each of the people individually who have so kindly donated to the project out of the goodness in their hearts thus far, and we thank them. Please look for news moving forward. Thank you....

      Hey so I’m not sure if this is the place to post this, but I’m looking for a Martin HD-40 Tom Petty model if anyone has one or has a lead. Thanks!

      Mark Felsot posted in the TPN Facebook group this morning that they’re doing “Mojo Madness” all weekend on TPR since it’s Mojo’s 9th birthday. 
      What interested me specifically was his mentioning that they’ll be playing a song from the Mojo sessions never before heard on TPR. I guess what I’m wanting to find out is, has it also never been heard by me? 😂
      I don’t currently have TPR, so if anyone’s listening this morning and hears the song, would you mind sharing what it is? The suspense is killing me! 😂
      (and if anyone happens to record it if it’s not something we’ve heard before, I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to anyone sharing it 😜😂)

      Hi! I’m a huge Tom Petty fan and I also make metal artwork. I just launched a Kickstarter campaign for Tom Petty fans. Please take a look at it and if you like what I’m trying to make, please support the project, or at least re-post it to help me get the word out! I would really appreciate it! Please let me know what you think and if you have any questions! Thank you!
