Features: This bowl-shaped property contains a remnant wetland dating back well over 100,000 years ago to the Illinoisan Ice Age. The Hillside Trust collaborated with Mt. Washington residents who raised $60,000, combined with $140,000 contributed by the State of Ohio to buy out Blackhawk Development. The developer was planning to drain the wetland and build 16 homes. This property is part of an annual maintenance and improvement schedule. In 2015, the property was opened up for use by the adjacent Sands Montessori School.
