The land and buildings within the District are privately owned. Many of the homeowners within the District have donated or sold scenic easements over their property to protect the historic scene. The Department of the Interior holds many of those easements and the National Park Service is responsible for monitoring and enforcing them. A private organization, Historic Green Springs, Inc., also holds easements and is dedicated to the preservation of the District.
