SYLVANIA - The Lorenzo Dow birthday celebration held at the Dell-Goodall house outside Sylvania brought in nearly 100 visitors and more than $700 to aid in the restoration of the 19th-Century home. In an effort to again breathe life into this project, the Briar Creek Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution held a birthday celebration and fundraiser honoring the history of the home and the legendary visit from a traveling preacher in the early 1800s. The house, built in 1815 in Jacksonboro by Seaborn Goodall, was home to the Goodall family for 23 years.
