“It feels, here in my heart, that we are blessed to be the custodians of the architectural history, the American history from 1761 and before, and to hold the history of the Garner family and previous generations,” says Leigh Ann Miller. “It means being a steward to the land and the history here.”
Ditchley’s Unique Journey to Conservation
Preserve the Land You Love
The Northern Neck Land Conservancy is a small non-profit land trust on the Northern Neck of Virginia, a peninsula located between the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers and bordering the Chesapeake Bay. Water surrounds our area and in order to keep it bountiful and safe for fishing, crabbing, swimming and drinking, we need a clean environment with protected stream banks, expansive woodlands, attentive farming and citizens who choose to safeguard the environment from pollutants. We help landowners who want to voluntarily protect their lands with permanent conservation easements to ensure that their property sustains the rural character of the Northern Neck and maintains a healthy environment for future generations.
