The Brandywine Conservancy is partnering with Mt. Cuba Center, The Conservation Fund, and others to raise money to save the 240-acre Beaver Valley, a site in Concord Township, Delaware County, PA, noted for its historic significance and bucolic landscapes.
Originally acquired by William Penn from the Duke of York in 1682, the property lies near the banks of the Brandywine River in Concord Township, Pennsylvania. Nearby, in 1777, General George Washington’s troops defended against British forces in the largest battle of the American Revolution. Since then, the Brandywine Valley’s natural beauty has inspired generations of artists, including acclaimed painter Andrew Wyeth.
Thank you for your interest in saving Beaver Valley. With the generous outpouring of community support, we believe we have made our goal, however the transaction does not officially close until Monday, May 1, after which we will issue a press release as to the final amount raised and announcing that the deal is complete. We wish to express our deep gratitude to the Mt. Cuba Center and The Conservation Fund and to all of the groups and individuals who worked so tirelessly and gave so generously to make this a reality. THANK YOU! If you have any further questions please contact, Kim Reynolds at 610-388-8349 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
