REDSKINS MOVING FROM RFK STADIUM TO JURASSIC PARK?
Published April 5, 1995
The Prince George's County Council yesterday voted "unanimously" to buy 300 acres in Landover, MD, known as Wilson Farm. The farm is one area Redskins Owner Jack Kent Cooke is reportedly interested in for a new stadium. Officials, however, contend that the purchase "has little to do" with Cooke's reported interest and that "it's not intended to be used as a springboard for a potential stadium" (John Mercurio, WASHINGTON TIMES, 4/5). But Cooke could face another obstacle with the site, since it "sits atop" the Brightseat Formation, an important geological site that scientists from the Smithsonian Institution and the Interior Dept. are "urging county officials to protect." The area is believed to be rich with fossils, and scientists want to preserve the farm for researching natural history (Pierre & Jeter, WASHINGTON POST, 4/5).
