Mrs. Lillian Jenifer, 1928-2017

Cromwell Valley Park Council is saddened by the loss of one of its pillars of preservation, Mrs. Lillian Jenifer, who passed away on May 19, 2017.

Mrs. Jenifer was a long-time supporter of Cromwell Valley Park and the efforts to preserve the land, the architecture, and the history in the Cromwell Valley. Generations to follow are able to enjoy her efforts which preserved the legacy and colonial history of this area and its structures. Mrs. Jenifer also served as the Vice President of Friends of Cromwell Valley.

The importance of Mrs. Jeniferís legacy will continue on in Cromwell Valley Park due to the generosity of Mrs. Jeniferís family, who asked that donations be made in her name to start the Lillian Jenifer Memorial Fund. All donations to this fund will be used to benefit Cromwell Valley Park, conserving and improving its natural environment, structures, and programs. The Cromwell Valley Park Council will confer with the family of Mrs. Jenifer to determine how to best honor Lillian's legacy with these donation funds.


About Cromwell Valley Park

The 460-acre park is a stream valley park comprised of pasture, cultivated gardens, open fields, woods, hedgerows, orchards and wooded piedmont hills. The diversity of this habitat makes it an excellent area for wildlife. There are many species of raptors such as the Red-tailed Hawk, American Kestrel, and Great Horned Owl, which prey on a healthy population of small mammals such as rabbits, deer mice, and meadow voles. White-tailed deer and red fox are also plentiful. Songbird populations include Baltimore Oriole, Bobolink, Eastern Meadowlark, Indigo Bunting, Eastern Bluebird, and many others. Belted Kingfishers and Great Blue Herons are often seen around the Minebank Run.

The educational focus at Cromwell Valley Park is in three major areas - farming, history, and natural history.
