First State National Historical Park poised to expand

First State National Historical Park poised to expand
Opened four years ago, First State National Historical Park is already poised to expand, thanks to land-preservation tax incentives and deals with the heirs of two deep-rooted Brandywine Valley industrial families. The park is comprised of colonial sites in four Delaware towns. Its largest property spans 1,100 acres of woodlands and creek-side meadows east of Brandywine Creek in Chadds Ford Township, Pa., and the Brandywine Hundred area of Delaware. The planned expansion will add 270 acres on Beaver Valley Road by Concord Township. In 2013, Mt. Cuba Center, a nonprofit botanical garden, paid $20.8 million to Woodlawn Trustees for the 1,100 acres, or around $19,000 an acre. In the current deal, Mt. Cuba Center and its partners will pay more than $29,000 per acre.
