Forested area at Ware Bottom Church Battlefield

Fifty one acres of land protected at Ware Bottom Church Battlefield

A CRLC-held conservation easement will protect this historic site for public park access and promotion of historic awareness in Chesterfield County.

This exciting land acquisition will create one contiguous publicly accessible riverfront space and allow for the completion of the Virginia Capital Trail.

CRLC is proud to announce that we recently transferred 371 acres of this property to the National Park Service, expanding the Malvern Hill Battlefield Park area by nearly 40%!
