Henrico to buy riverfront farmland; plans to build schools, museum, and parks
HENRICO COUNTY, Va. — A Henrico County farm once planned for a 3,000-home development is now slated for public uses, including waterfront parks, school sites and a long-desired county history museum.
Henrico officials announced Thursday that the county will purchase Wilton Farm – a nearly 1,200-acre property filling a curve in the James River just south of Pocahontas Parkway – for $10 million from HHHunt, which had approval to develop an urban mixed-use development totaling 3,209 residential units.
