About Great Meadow Foundation

Great Meadow was founded through the vision of news executive and philanthropist Arthur W. (Nick) Arundel in 1982 Arundel purchased an abandoned farm then slated to become a housing development for perpetual preservation of open space. The concept of Great Meadow grew out of several converging forces of the 1980&quo;s, primarily urban growth pressure on farmland near Washington, the opening of I-66 and the simultaneous loss of former Virginia Gold Cup course in Warrenton to subdivision development. Since their inception they have been the permanent home for the Virginia Gold Cup and Family 4th of July celebrations. Over the years, they have added several more community events, ranging from Twilight Polo to the Virginia State Cross Country Tournaments. For more information, please visit: www.greatmeadow.org.
