Emery Farm in Durham is now one step closer to being protected from commercial or industrial development thanks to a new grant from the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program (LCHIP). Emery farm, located at 135 Piscataqua Road, was one out of 36 historic, cultural, or land conservation projects throughout the state that received grants from LCHIP. The grant will allow for owners David Hills and his wife, Catherine McLaughlin-Hills, to apply for an easement for the last unprotected 38 acres that will limit the use of the land to agricultural only.
