In the winter of 2007, Margaret Lake donated a conservation easement on one 172 acres known as The Lake Farm in Bourbon County. The farm is underlain by the Millersburg Member of the Lexington Limestone Formation, which is composed of mostly limestone with some interbedded and interlaminated calcareous shale. The property contains prime farmland soils and soils of statewide importance identified by the Natural Resource Conservation Service of the United States Department of Agriculture. Located just north from the County’s historic Colville Road covered bridge, The Lake Farm includes 2,950 feet of frontage along the north and south sides of Lake Road and 1,100 feet of frontage along the west side of Colville Road. The public traveling these roads is afforded scenic views of the rolling pastures and fields whose beauty and open space character are protected by this conservation easement.
