This 60 plus acres parcel was purchased by OWLT from Ed and Janet Beimborn in 2017. This land has been in and out of the Beimborn family's hands for over 120 years. The family cabin serves as a reminder of those days.

The Beimborns considered their land a very special place, viewed their ownership as temporary, and regarded themselves primarily as stewards of this land. They felt that moving the land to the land trust would be the best way to guarantee that the land would continue to be preserved and protected. It also made it available to others who love woods, waters, and open spaces to enjoy it as their family had done for so long.

The land is part of the Cedar Sauk Woodlands. The water here is part of the headwaters of Cedar Creek.
