Michael Bedenbaugh, director of the Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation, made the announcement via the "Save Bon Haven" Facebook page on Friday.
He said the group had to raise $10,000 for an initial payment on the $250,000 contract it had agreed to purchase from Alabama-based Southern Accents Architectural Antiques within 60 days. The company had a contract with the Cleveland family to purchase the home, but not the six-acre property on North Church Street.
Bedenbaugh said the group received more than $10,000 in pledges from the community, but many of those pledges were dependent upon the group raising the full $250,000.
Southern Accents Architectural Antiques will now be free to sell the mantels, doors, mouldings, fixtures, railings and posts from the staircase, as well as other antiques that already have been removed from the home.
"The forces against this were already in place long before we started," Bedenbaugh said.

Bedenbaugh said although the group had conceded its effort to save Bon Haven's interior, he still planned to pursue a historic landmark status for the exterior and hopes to see it one day be reused for commercial space.

The group formed earlier this year to preserve Bon Haven said it has ended its campaign to save the historic mansion's interior.

Michael Bedenbaugh, director of the Palmetto Trust for Historic Preservation, made the announcement via the "Save Bon Haven" Facebook page on Friday.

He said the group had to raise $10,000 for an initial payment on the $250,000 contract it had agreed to purchase from Alabama-based Southern Accents Architectural Antiques within 60 days.

The designation, however, wouldn't require the owners to make improvements, and the house could fall into further disrepair.

Bon Haven supporters received help from the salvage company at the end of February when it agreed to wait 60 days to give the preservation group time to raise the money.

Bedenbaugh said although the group had conceded its effort to save Bon Haven's interior, he still planned to pursue a historic landmark status for the exterior and hopes to see it one day be reused for commercial space.

Mike Bedenbaugh, director of Palmetto Trust, said the group formed to help save the historic home has received confirmation that Alabama-based Southern Accents Architectural Antiques will hold items, such as mantels and antique doors, for 60 days as the group tries to raise funds for the effort.
The salvage company has a contract on the house, but the Cleveland family has agreed to wait at least 60 days to move forward with the sale.
"Everyone is cooperating and working together to try to save the home, and we are grateful to (Spartanburg) City Council, the Cleveland family and the salvage company for working with us to try to save this home," Bedenbaugh said.
Bedenbaugh said the group hopes to raise $250,000 to purchase the contract on the home, which includes antiques that the salvage company has already removed from the home. Bedenbaugh said mantels, doors, moulding, fixtures and railings and posts from the staircase have been removed, but can be repurchased from the salvage company.
If the group fails to raise the needed funds, Bedenbaugh said the money will be used to purchase fixtures, doors and other items taken from the home.
"It's still important, regardless of whether or not we can raise all of the money, that those salvage pieces are saved," Bedenbaugh said.
...
"We have 60 days to find an attractive buyer, and to raise money to help purchase the contract or stabilize the structure," Bedenbaugh said.

"It's still important, regardless of whether or not we can raise all of the money, that those salvage pieces are saved," Bedenbaugh said.

The Cleveland family, who are the owners of Bon Haven, agreed for council not to consider whether the house would be placed on the local historic register for at least 60 days. Council was set to hear the matter during its Feb. 23 meeting, but Cleveland family attorney Larry Flynn asked for the item to be considered at a later date "which will give all parties an opportunity to consider all options for the future of Bon Haven."

The group formed to save Bon Haven want the historic home to remain intact in Spartanburg, as a residence or as redeveloped as commercial property.

The 10,000-square-foot home on the city's north side was built in 1884 by John B. Cleveland, a prominent Spartanburg resident who served on several boards and was instrumental in Spartanburg's early history.

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

The city's Historic Architecture Review Board agreed to place the property on the local historic registry earlier this month to give the property a second chance, and the matter then was placed on the council agenda.

A group of local residents, with assistance from Palmetto Trust Director Mike Bedenbaugh, are attempting to raise $250,000 to purchase the contract on the home from an Alabama salvage company, which has an agreement with the Clevelands for purchase.

Bedenbaugh said Friday he is encouraged by the family's action to take the matter temporarily off council's agenda.
"It shows we are working together," Bedenbaugh said. "The family, representatives, everybody who cares about Bon Haven is working together on this important issue, and we have another 60 days to see what other solutions might be out there."
Bedenbaugh said the "Save Bon Haven" group is grateful for the cooperation from the family and the city.

"We have 60 days to find an attractive buyer, and to raise money to help purchase the contract or stabilize the structure," Bedenbaugh said.

The matter came before the HARB after 10 residents signed a petition after Bon Haven owners, various members of the Cleveland family, signed a contract with a salvage company, and the home was scheduled to be dismantled with pieces sold separately.

The Cleveland family initially opposed the local historic designation, saying they wanted the home to stay intact in Spartanburg, but the home had fallen into disrepair after a tree fell on a portion of it and caused damage.

The home, left largely unsecure, has been vacant for years, they said.

The family also said they had been unsuccessful in attracting a local buyer for the house.

Michael Bedenbaugh, director of the Palmetto Trust, said the house can be saved if the family is willing to reduce the price to better reflect the appraised value; the Save Bon Haven group is given access to the house for showings; and the group is given time to raise money for the effort. Bedenbaugh said the house can be restored to a commercial use. He said the family has asked for between $1.5 million and $2 million for the house.
...
Bedenbaugh said he has been in direct contact with the owner of the salvage company, who has agreed to sell Palmetto Trust the contract for the house for $250,000. Bedenbaugh said the Mississippi individual is no longer involved, so if the home isn't saved, it would be dismantled, and pieces, such as mantels, staircases and columns, sold through the salvage company's website.
...
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.
...
Bedenbaugh said the trust proves the Clevelands wanted Bon Haven to remain cared for and in Spartanburg.

The granite foundation, for example, was quarried from the property and the first-story bricks were fired on the property.
