USNPS evicts nonprofit that has run Claude Moore Colonial Farm since 1981

WASHINGTON — WTOP has learned the National Park Service told the non-profit group that has operated Claude Moore Colonial Farm since 1981 that they have one week to leave the premises — and to take their farm animals with them.


Friends of Claude Moore Farm operates the popular tourist attraction, which realistically depicts life on a 1771 farm, as part of a cooperative agreement with the Park Service. The agreement expired in 2006, but it was extended each year, with a final extension through Dec. 21, 2018.
