Welcome to the WOODLAWN TRUSTEES, INCORPORATED Web site. Our goal is to provide you with useful information about our organization that we hope makes it easier for you to learn about the purpose and objects of Woodlawn.
At the age of 66, our founder, William Bancroft felt the need to organize a company that would continue his interests beyond his lifetime. In 1901, he established Woodlawn Company, known today as Woodlawn Trustees, Incorporated. Woodlawn is a not-for-profit (but tax-paying) real estate business managed by a board of directors with earnings channelled back into the company. Carefully planned development generates the funds to further Woodlawn activities which include preservation of open space and affordable rental housing to persons of modest means.
At this web site, you will discover all about the history of our rental housing, planning and development activities, the preservation of parkland for public enjoyment, as well as our founder, William Bancroft.
