The time is finally here!
We’ve been so excited for this moment to arrive! Now that it’s officially hit the press, we can share it with you!
The story of Sylvanside’s preservation has been captured and published in WANDER, a Loudoun County local publication. The magazine gives voice to the residents of the County who have a deep love of the land, its history, and rural character.
The story weaves the history of the land from its original founding in 1742 to its current status as a top-rated wedding venue, monarch waystation, and refuge for heritage breed animals. The road to Sylvanside’s reclamation was not always smooth – as recently as 2018, the property was in foreclosure and at risk of being the site of a 32-townhome complex.
“The thrill of actively stepping into history and ‘seeing such a drastic change in the health of the land is the ultimate reward,’ Terri nodded. As we set our eyes to Loudoun’s future, it will take this inspired sense of ingenuity and dedication as we collectively determine the fate of the properties that have given birth to such a rich historical legacy.”
WANDER tells stories about multi-generation growers, land preservation, great getaway adventures, agriculture trends like regenerative farming, local CSA (community supported agriculture) options, Loudoun artists and artisans, Loudoun-made products, and more.
