COVENTRY, R.I. (WLNE) – A local museum and homestead of a Rhode Island-born Revolutionary War hero is raising money after a heap of trash was left on their lawn.  

Caretakers of the General Nathanael Greene Homestead in Coventry reported finding “a large pile of trash” on the property Wednesday morning.

This is the second time in just two months that trash has been dumped at the Homestead.

In April, a truckload of landscaping waste and construction debris was dumped behind the property’s barn.

Nathanael Greene served as a close adviser and confidante to George Washington during the American Revolution. Late in the war he was given command of Washington’s southern forces.

The Homestead is accepting donations to help with the costs of installing security cameras on the premises.
