The Williamsburg Land Conservancy holds a permanent conservation easement on the Curtis Farm, a 75-acre parcel of land situated on Denbigh Boulevard at the intersection of Route 17. It is one of the few working farms left in York County. The easement will forever protect the rural character and ambiance this property provides.
More specifically, there are approximately 27.69 acres of forest, which provide for and protect water quality and scenic buffers. The Property borders both banks of the Poquoson River for approximately 2,517 feet and lies directly across Denbigh Blvd. from Harwoods Mill Park/Harwoods Mill Reservoir. Harwoods Mill Reservoir is one of the main drinking water supply reservoirs for York County. Areas of the property provide scenic views to the public. The property is used for equine activities – boarding, pasturing and riding of horses, and the hay consumed by them is produced on the land.
The land is owned by Carrie Wray Curtis, and has been in her family since 1886. As a landowner, Ms. Curtis is modest about her efforts to protect the land, and is pleased this part of her heritage will remain intact forever.
