This area along Rt. 50 in Loudoun County played a pivotal role in the story of America. In the summer of 1863 three successive battles were fought in this area in the ramp up to Gettysburg. Today NOVA Parks has assembled 5 historic parks in this area that help tell this story to visitors, promoting tourism through conservation. The 1863 Fund is an endowment to support these historic parks and more that may come.

The NOVA Parks properties in this area include:

Mt. Zion Historic Church
Gilbert’s Corner Regional Park
Aldie Mill Historic Park
Battle of Middleburg/Mt. Defiance Historic Park
Battle of Upperville/Goose Creek Bridge Historic Park

Your donation to the 1863 Fund will support the operations of these parks, and help NOVA Parks expand on the parkland in this area.
