Malvern Hill Farm under contract


A historic Eastern Henrico farm – the site of a bloody Civil War battle in 1862 – will be preserved in its entirety, thanks to the Capital Region Land Conservancy.

The CRLC has agreed to purchase Malvern Hill Farm (which is about 875 acres in size and straddles Eastern Henrico and Charles City County) for its appraised value of $6.56 million. The sellers are by descendants of William Heighler Ferguson Sr., who originally purchased Malvern Hill Farm in 1939.

“In one transaction CRLC is taking a giant step in protecting the natural and historic land and water resources of our region,” said Parker C. Agelasto, executive director of Capital Region Land Conservancy. > Read more.
