This is a living window looking back to how the entire county looked just a couple generations ago: green rolling pastures, forests and working farms. All connected with a web of country roads.

New visitors are amazed that there’s only one bridge river crossing from Montgomery County into Virginia – the American Legion Bridge on the 1-495 Beltway. Unless you want to swim, the only other way to cross the Potomac River is via White’s Ferry. A visit here is a great step back in time.
Less than 20 miles from the Washington Beltway is some of the most pristine countryside you will see anywhere. The Agricultural Reserve in Montgomery County is the result of very progressive land use policies implemented in 1980. With the easement acquisition of the Sunny Ridge Farm in January, Montgomery County reached its goal of preserving 70,000 acres of farmland through protective easements. Now, we have the largest percentage of preserved agricultural land in the United States.
This Ag Reserve is a real jewel in Montgomery County. The area is laced with country roads perfect for riding bikes, visiting orchards and equestrian activities. But it’s so much more than a destination to visit. It’s a tranquil place to live and call home. Check out homes for sale in the Agricultural Reserve and find your own place in the country.
