CityLine: July 12, 2001
Under County Executive Andy Spanos proposal - which still has to be approved by county legislators - the county would pay $2.8 million for a 178-acre former dairy farm with its splendid vistas, pastures and woodlands. Most of the property would be kept as open space, with an almost 50-acre parcel on the west side of Hanover Street turned into an environmental education center, possibly in cooperation with agriculture or horticulture groups.
The county would preserve most of the existing buildings, which include a 4,000-square-foot main residence, a managers house, a caretakers house and a dairy barn.
The acquisition would be part of a $25 million open space program that has already led to the preservation of more than 2,300 acres in Westchester.
