Acreage made famous by painter donated to First State NHP

The Conservation Fund announced Thursday it has donated 254 acres near Brandywine Creek in Delaware County to First State National Historical Park on the Delaware-Pennsylvania border in a landscape of rolling hills, meadows, and wetlands captured and made famous in paintings by Andrew Wyeth.

“We are thrilled to accept this land donation from The Conservation Fund,” Cinda Waldbuesser, superintendent of First State National Historical Park, said in a statement. “The addition of this land to the park’s Brandywine Valley Unit adds many new miles of trail and bucolic landscapes for park visitors to enjoy.”
