Landslide 2012: Landscape and Patronage

The Cultural Landscape Foundation announces the 2012 Landslide: Landscape and Patronage. Landslide, the annual thematic compendium of threatened and at-risk landscapes, in 2012 focuses on visionary patrons and organizations and the sites they helped create. The goal is to celebrate their accomplishments and inspire new generations of patrons and philanthropists. The landscapes that surround us everyday shape our communities and the people living in them.

Intereating point. When we moved to Oak Hill in 1970 we were the house on a grave road that led to two farmhouses at the far end of the wood. We were rural. Now the same road black topped is a cul de sac which encompes 37 residences with manicured lawns. The woods is gone except for my 3 acres surrounding our home and woodland gardens. Somehow without moving we feel we are now part of suburbia. Next I suppose we'll have malls nearby. I don't like it....

troutbirder,

Seems to be a common complaint. I guess they're not making anymore land these days, eh?
