On February 1, 2018 CRLC finalized its acquisition of the 871 acre Malvern Hill Farm. This acquisition is a long-awaited victory after an 18 month long effort to save the farm from likely development after it went up for sale.
CRLC, with the support of numerous partners, developed plans for permanent protection of all of Malvern Hill Farm through other ownership coupled with conservation easements. As of spring of 2019, CRLC continues to own 379.43 acres on two parcels in Henrico County that are slated to ultimately become oart of the National Park Service's Malvern Hill Battlefield National Park and 64.2 acres in Charles City County of which 51 acres are part of the Department of Historic Resources' easement for historic Malvern Hill Farm.
For the full history of CRLC's initiative to save Malvern Hill Farm, please see our News webpage.
CRLC raised $5.7 million to support this $6.6 million acquisition. This includes two $500,000 challenge grants that will match 1:1 every $1 donated. Can you make a tax-deductible contribution to help us reach our goals?
