Inscription. Farmed for centuries, these fields have remained a cherished Harding vista while much open cropland disappeared. In 1999, Peter H. B. Frelinghuysen conveyed to the Harding Land Trust nearly 100 acres of open fields on both sides of James Street through outright donation, conservation easements and "bargain sales" well below market value. This land will be permanently preserved as open space thanks to the generosity of Mr. Frelinghuysen.

The New Jersey Green Acres program, The Morris County Preservation Trust, and Township of Harding and private donors assisted the Harding Land Trust in making this acquisition.
 
Erected by Harding Land Trust.
