The History of Woodview

A Historic Site Where You Make Your Own History

Woodview provides a setting to enrich memorable moments—an 18th-century fieldstone home surrounded by fields, woods, and a stream.


The historic fieldstone home south of Bel Air is older than our nation itself. The east section of the two and one half-story residence was erected in 1744. The house was then expanded in the early 19th century into the beautiful Federal Style home you see today by an ancestor of the current owners. The house site occupies high ground once known as Gibson’s Ridge between the Plumtree and Winter’s Run valleys.


The house, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and much of its remaining acreage were protected with the help of the Harford Land Trust in 2022 under agricultural conservation easements held by Harford County.

In 2023 The Farmers & Community Partnership of Harford County included Woodview in its “Harford Legacy Farm” program based on these criteria:

  • Continuously owned by the same family for 100 years or more
  • At least 10 acres of the original purchase, and
  • Actively farmed
