Give to the James Millikin Homestead

Donations to the James Millikin Homestead support the preservation and maintenance of this historic Decatur landmark. Donations also provide funding for the not for profit Homestead, Inc. to continue the important work of educating our community about the significance of local history. Your contributions to this beautiful 1876 structure, a place called “home” by a couple who had a lasting and positive impact on Decatur and the surrounding area, is appreciated! On behalf of James and Anna Millikin, the Millikin Homestead, Inc. thanks you for your generosity.


The Amazon Foundation will give to the Homestead one half of one percent (0.5%) of the price of eligible items purchased by you at no extra cost to you.
