Promised Land Helps Widow Create Something Good 

Evelyn's late husband purchased 100 acres of land adjacent to their summer home in Putnam county. He hoped to build a housing development but those plans never materialized. Evelyn’s husband passed away and she attempted to sell the property numerous times, but each time the sale fell through. She was still paying taxes on the undeveloped woodland and wetland acreage, forty years after her late husband bought it.

Evelyn didn’t want the property, didn’t want to keep paying the taxes but wanted to see some good come from it. She donated the land to Promised Land and received a large tax deduction. The property abuts a religious burial ground so Promised Land is in the process of using the land to expand the burial ground into a modern-day religious cemetery.
