South Turkey Run Park

National Park Service Unit

blank dot

This park, formerly known as the Claude Moore Colonial Farm, was a demonstration of a low-income homestead in Northern Virginia during the late colonial period. The property includes about 100 acres; about 12 were farmed with corn, tobacco, wheat, vegetables, and an orchard. Livestock roamed freely, but the valuable crops were protected by fencing. The agreement between the NPS and the Friends of Claude Moore Colonial Farm, which provided day-to-day Colonial themed programming in this area of the park for many years, expired December 21, 2018. Plans for the future of the park are being developed by the National Park Service.
