November 20, 1911 - July 20, 2001In 1946 Mr. George A. (Jay) Chadwick, Jr. bought the Gold Mine Farm which now makes up a large part of Black Hill Regional Park. He cleared the property of brush and Fieldstone for a dairy farm which was operated for many years. This beautiful stone was saved and use to build the house that now serves as the Park Office. His early interest in land conservation and preservation led to the construction of ponds on the farm and placement of rocks in ditches to stop erosion. His generosity made it possible for The Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission to purchase the land for construction and recreation.
