As you step onto the sprawling grounds of French Broad Crossing, a sense of reverence washes over you. It's not just the crisp mountain air or the soothing melody of the nearby river; it's the realization that you're standing on something truly extraordinary. Since its inception in 2014, French Broad Crossing has been on a mission to protect and preserve the precious land it calls home.

Over 750 acres of this breathtaking landscape have been carefully entrusted to the guardianship of conservation easements. These legally binding agreements ensure that this pristine fusion of mountains and river will remain untouched by the hands of future development. "From day one, our focus has been on safeguarding this remarkable piece of land," explains David Brannon, Landscape Architect at French Broad Crossing. "It's not just for us – it's for generations to come."

By placing land under conservation easements, French Broad Crossing is safeguarding its "ecological value" for the long haul. This means that harmful or unnecessary development is off the table, allowing the natural ecosystem to thrive undisturbed. The core of this conservation effort is centered around the protection of the French Broad River and its surrounding habitat, ensuring that this vital lifeline remains pristine for all time.

At French Broad Crossing, conservation isn't just a buzzword – it's a way of life. It's a commitment to preserving the very essence of what makes this place so special: the untouched beauty of the mountains, the untamed majesty of the river, and the promise of a brighter future for generations to come. Join us in our mission to protect paradise – because some treasures are simply too precious to lose.
