Quincy Farm is a 17.5-acre property in the heart of Cherry Hills Village, spanning both sides of the High Line Canal. The Farm is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the well-preserved buildings and pastures are a picturesque part of the region’s past. Quincy Farm was generously gifted to the City of Cherry Hills Village by its previous owner, Catherine (“Cat”) H. Anderson, with the intention that it become an amenity for the whole community. She also placed the Farm under a Conservation Easement, administered by Colorado Open Lands.
Cherry Hills Village is eager to achieve Catherine Anderson’s vision to preserve Quincy Farm in perpetuity and promote uses for the property that instill appreciation and respect for the nature and human history of the area. The City is in the process of completing various improvement projects to prepare the Farm for an Open House in late summer 2018. The projects include: the addition of a nature trail through the pastures, Plant Select and Pollinator Gardens (made possible with the generous support of the Cherry Hills Land Preserve), tree trimming and the installation of a new irrigation system (made possible with a grant from Arapahoe County Open Spaces), and the installation of a sewer connection to the main farmhouse.
The Quincy Farm Committee is a citizen committee that meets monthly to plan for the future of the Farm. Meetings are open to the public.
