Description: The Mayaone Reserve is wooded community of some 180 homes in Accokeek, MD. It is contiguous to Piscataway National Park, home of the National Colonial Farm, and to the Hard Bargain Farm, an environmental education center. Immediately across the Potomac River in Virginia is George Washington’s Mount Vernon home. The larger part of the community is located in Prince George’s County with a smaller area in Charles County. The properties in this data set only represent the privately owned properties within Prince George's County and does not include National Park land, other public property, or property in Charles County.Most lots are five acres or greater in size and protected by scenic easements deeded to the federal government. The easements were established to protect the viewshed from Mt. Vernon, requiring property owners to obtain permission from the National Park Service before felling any tree larger than six inches in diameter or 30 feet in height. Questions about easements and requests for permission to remove trees should be emailed to the National Park Service at
