The beautiful Rawson property consists of a variety of undisturbed natural features and habitats, including gently rolling grasslands, mixed woodlands of oak, hickory, tulip poplar and beech trees, and 1,000 feet of Rawson Run (shown in the above two photos), an important tributary of the Crum Creek.
The easement restricts future subdivision and building on the property to just one additional secondary residence. Scenic views of the land and ecologically sensitive areas are protected by the easement, as it restricts the location of landscaping and secondary structures.
Under the Rawson family’s careful stewardship for 50 years, their conservation easement donation is the ultimate gesture of love for the land. With it, future generations can be assured that the land will be here essentially in its present state for all to enjoy forever.
Thanks to David and Therese Rawson, heroes of the countryside!
