15-acre Chester County property to be permanently preserved to protect drinking water

The Homsey farm, a 15-acre property in Landenberg, Chester County will be permanently preserved in order to protect natural lands and a tributary that serves as a major source of drinking water in New Castle County, Delaware. The conservation easement was secured by Natural Lands, the Philadelphia area’s largest conservation organization. The property’s forests and meadows will be protected and no subdivisions or development will be permitted. The owners of the property are descendants of 19th century illustrator and Wilmington native Howard Pyle.
