Piedmont Environmental Council Celebrates New Home

pec_house_0

This historic home of Civil War officer John Mosby now serves as headquarters for the Piedmont Environmental Council.

As the suburbs of Washington grew, people who loved the rural feel of neighboring Virginia counties were alarmed.  Residents of Albemarle County were equally worried as Charlottesville began to expand.  Today, a group called the Piedmont Environmental Council has emerged as a champion of farmland, forests and historic sites in nine counties south and west of D.C.  It’s also become a model for preservationists nationwide as Sandy Hausman reports.

The Piedmont Environmental Council hosts an open house Friday, December 11 from 10:30 to 7 at its newly renovated headquarters on Horner Street in Warrenton.
