A number of people spoke in favor of saving Bon Haven, particularly for the historical significance of John Cleveland, who is known as "Spartanburg's first citizen," said Kristi Webb, a co-chairwoman of the Save Bon Haven group.

...
Cleveland was a founder and trustee of Converse College, a founder of the Spartanburg Water Company and donated 50 acres of land for the future Cleveland Park, among many other accomplishments.

Bedenbaugh, over objections from Cleveland family attorney Larry Flynn, said Cleveland and his son, Jesse Cleveland, established a trust for the maintenance and upkeep of Bon Haven, which the family cashed out in 2001.

Palmetto Trust Executive ...

Palmetto Trust Executive Director Michael Bedenbaugh told the group of about 25 people in the library's Barrett Room that Southern Accents Architectural Antiques, of Alabama, has a contract with the Cleveland family to purchase the home, but not the six-acre property on North Church Street.
...
Bedenbaugh said the architectural group, which is essentially a salvage company, has agreed to sell the contract on the home to the Palmetto Trust for $250,000.
Bedenbaugh said the Alabama company initially had an agreement with a Mississippi individual to rebuild Bon Haven there, but that deal has fallen through.
"They will transfer the contract to us for $250,000, but we need to get pledges of that amount by Feb. 22," Bedenbaugh said.
If the Palmetto Trust gets a contract on Bon Haven and Spartanburg City Council agrees to place the home on the local historic register, Bedenbaugh said he would hope Cleveland family representatives would work with the Trust to market the house and property to an "income-producing entity" to be used as a boutique hotel or elderly housing for example.
However, Bedenbaugh said nothing would prevent the owners of Bon Haven from allowing the house to fall deeper into deterioration, even with the local historic protection.
...
Bedenbaugh said most of the house's interior pieces including doors, crown molding, a part of the staircase and mantels have been removed by the Alabama company, but they have since agreed not to remove anything else until the matter is resolved. Bedenbaugh said the items that have been removed will not be resold until the issue is decided.
...
Bedenbaugh said a Cleveland Trust worth millions left by Jesse Cleveland, the son of John B. Cleveland, was proof the Clevelands wanted the house saved.
...
Bedenbaugh said the trust was enforceable by the courts for 50 years, which ended in 1998. He said the family cashed in the trust in 2002 and divided the proceeds.
"If this property is lost, it's to the detriment of this city," Bedenbaugh said.
...
Although the home is on the national register, it is not protected from demolition or dismantling.

The HARB board has placed Bon Haven on the pending list for historic properties and will hold a public hearing at its Feb. 12 meeting to determine whether to send the matter to Spartanburg City Council for a final decision.

A group of 10 individuals petitioned the HARB board for a hearing on Bon Haven, which triggered a meeting last month in which preservationists asked the HARB board to place the house on the pending local historic register.

Council could place the property on the city's historic registry, which would require the owners to appear before the HARB board before making alterations to the house.

Bedenbaugh said most of the house's interior pieces including doors, crown molding, a part of the staircase and mantels have been removed by the Alabama company, but they have since agreed not to remove anything else until the matter is resolved. Bedenbaugh said the items that have been removed will not be resold until the issue is decided.

When asked by an attendee whether he was disappointed in the turnout, Bedenbaugh said about a third of the number of people attended a meeting to save Greenville's Wilkins House, which was eventually saved.

Local historic preservation architect Donnie Love, who also serves on the Palmetto Trust board of directors, said the DuPre House, which was preserved by the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine after a once uncertain future, was proof that time, and the right buyer, can make a difference.

Bedenbaugh said a Cleveland Trust worth millions left by Jesse Cleveland, the son of John B. Cleveland, was proof the Clevelands wanted the house saved. Bedenbaugh said the trust was enforceable by the courts for 50 years, which ended in 1998.
