An Idea Took Shape Over Half a Century Ago

The dream was not about profit or progress, but 900 acres of preservation and pride. Friends became neighbors as they banded together and purchased this virgin land along the river. Then, as today, each property owner is a stockholder in the community - molding the future, preserving the past.
