During the early 1970s, two Quakers, Henry and Mary Cushing Niles, envisioned that the tract of forested mountain land that they assembled from several holdings south of Harpers Ferry, WV, should be turned into a wilderness preserve in which people of the Washington Metropolitan Region could experience healing and nurture of body and spirit. Thanks to the foresight and generosity of a unique Quaker couple, this natural treasure has been preserved for future generations. The Niles bequeathed their land and house, called Niles Cabin, to the Rolling Ridge Foundation for the enjoyment of the three nonprofit user groups that bring in a variety of people who appreciate this sanctuary and offered events. Their bequest was made with one defining provision: that the Foundation would provide for “perpetual, spiritual use of the land.”
