The Shepherdstown Battlefield Preservation Association is currently raising $100,000 to assist the American Battlefield Trust (ABT) with the $2,000,000 purchase of the Far Away Farm, located within the battlefield on Trough Road.
This comprises only 5% of the farm purchase price which will benefit Jefferson County in perpetuity.
The ABT was recently awarded a $300,000 WV State Outdoor Heritage Grant for the purchase of the Far Away Farm. The ABT and the Jefferson County Historic Landmarks Commission plan to apply for additional funding from the National Park Service American Battlefield Protection Program.
The SBPA promotes education about the battle and helps manage the battlefield through member activities, including the Birds in the Battlefield Program. Please donate today.
