Belward Farm is a bucolic 100-acre Civil War-era farm that is adjacent to four established residential neighborhoods and is 5 miles from the Metro.

Above is a slide from a presentation by the Johns Hopkins Real Estate division of their vision for Belward Farm.  The farmstead in the center would only be about 1/10 of the area of the farm and the buildings could be up to 14 stories high.

We fully support the expansion of the life sciences but hope that Johns Hopkins recognizes the treasure that Belward Farm is for Montgomery County and its residents.  There are ways to meet their objectives while saving the rolling contours of the land and the historic nature of the farm and the farmstead.
