A Land Trust
For over 30 years, Langhorne Open Space, Inc. (LOSI) has led the effort to preserve open space and historic structures in the local community.
LOSI’s membership consists of 200+ families and local businesses. Thanks to this generous support, LOSI has succeeded in saving the following properties from development.
- LANGHORNE HERITAGE FARM, a joyous place! On these eight acres, walkers stroll and children play while 100+ Community Garden plots are cultivated and harvested. Studio Artists create and inspire within the original outbuildings. The historic Barn and Farmhouse create a picturesque backdrop for free concerts, flea markets, Scouting events, Christmas Tree sales and the second-hand shop at this peaceful location.
- REVOLUTIONARY WAR BURIAL SITE is one of the largest preserved 18th century Revolutionary War burial sites recorded in Pennsylvania. It commemorates approximately 166 soldiers who offered their loyalty and lives during the Battles of Trenton and Princeton, Dec. 1776 – Jan. 1777.
- CATAWISSA CREEK NATURE PRESERVE spans six acres providing educators, naturalists, and walkers an enchanting forest with trails, foot bridge, pollinator garden and informational signs alongside invaluable wetlands and the meandering Catawissa Creek. Conservation efforts to preserve this natural terrain have been critical to local wildlife as well as individuals’ connection to nature within the quaint town of Langhorne Borough.
LOSI has also purchased several “Conservation Easements,” whereby the taxable property stays under private ownership, but development is precluded in perpetuity: ORTHODOX FRIENDS MEETINGHOUSE, KEEN’S FIELD and LANGHORNE MEADOW.
Our biggest asset is our dedicated membership and volunteer network who have woven a web of friendship and shared service.
