Hearst Mead Sign 180wIn 1976, William and Austine Hearst donated almost 62 acres of land to the North Salem Open Land Foundation, the second parcel of their generous gift (the other is the 6.6 acre Hearst Preserve). One year later, in December 1977, Eugenie Mead donated the adjacent 8 acres, giving NSOLF 70 acres of contiguous open space.

With the Halmi Preserve acquisition in 2002 and the O'Donohue Preserve in 2006, it brings the total of uninterrupted open space in the center of North Salem to 135 acres.

The Hearst-Mead Preserve is steeply sloped and fully wooded and includes an old road bed and plenty of stone wallls, a great walking spot for the energetic enthusiast. This parcel is accessed through the Halmi Preserve.
