The Methow Conservancy purchased the property from Bob Heckendorn in 2018 to protect it, using a gift from Tina and Eliot Scull to fund the purchase. In 2021, we sold it to the Town of Winthrop, which received funding for an open space park from the WA State Wildlife and Recreation Program. Now called the Meadowlark Natural Area, the old homestead is adjacent to the current Winthrop town limits.

Seven contiguous acres of the 146-acre parcel were reserved for potential opportunities for planned growth, as identified in the Town of Winthrop Comprehensive Plan as a future expansion area. The rest is enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.

The Methow Conservancy, in collaboration with the Town of Winthrop, cares for the Natural Area and we work to manage it both for wildlife habitat and public recreation free of charge.
