When Vernon and Leander Johnson bequeathed their farm to the Henderson County Schools in 1987, it was their vision that the farm be used as a heritage education center for area school children. Today, the farm is owned by HCPS and managed by Historic Johnson Farm Foundation Inc., a non-profit organization with a 501(c)(3) designation from the Internal Revenue Service. Qualified donations to the foundation are tax-deductible. The farm also has accounts with the Community Foundation of Henderson County. Donations to this foundation are tax-deductible as well.
