Kuhn family announces purchase of White's Ferry – Loudoun Now

Chuck Kuhn, founder and CEO ofJK Moving Services, and his wife Stacy Kuhn, have come to terms on a purchase of White’s Ferry, the family announced Friday afternoon.

Established in 1786, the ferry across the Potomac River near Leesburg ceased operation in December following a years-long legal battle over the operator’s rights to use the Loudoun County landing at Rockland Farm. Kuhn will be working with Peter Brown, the majority owner of Rockland Farm, in an effort to get the ferry reopened to the nearly 800 daily users, according to the announcement.

“White’s Ferry represents a piece of our region’s past as an early commerce route that built and sustained local economies and remains so today,” said Kuhn, whose family in recent year has acquired and placed conservation easements on thousands of acres of rural and environmentally significant land.
