Harness brothers donate land for conservation to prevent housing development by Neenah


Homes in the Conant Heights subdivision in Neenah abut a cornfield on the Harness farm in the town of Neenah.
NEENAH – North of Breezewood Lane and west of Neenah’s Memorial Park stands nearly 140 acres of cropland and woodland known as the Harness farm.
For decades, Neenah has desired to annex the property, designating it as most suitable for low-density residential development. The land lies in the town of Neenah, but is on the city’s doorstep and within the city’s defined growth area.
Neenah’s Director of Community Development Chris Haese said the Harness farm could accommodate 250 to 300 single-family homes.
