Our History

Cherry Cove Land Development, corporate predecessor to The Cherry Cove Group, was founded in 1977 by Henry T. Waring, after his retirement from Naval aviation landed him in Lexington Park, Maryland, a Southern Maryland region bordering on the Chesapeake Bay. In an economy then characterized by the rapid development of the Patuxent River Naval Air Station, the Lexington Park area experienced unprecedented growth over several decades. Mr. Waring began Cherry Cove Land Development to meet the corresponding residential and commercial real estate needs of what had been a small rural farming and fishing community.

As the Patuxent River facility continued on its path to become what is now one of a select few, technologically exclusive military installations, responsible for the testing and development of a majority of the Navy’s aircraft platforms, Cherry Cove Land Development matured into a diversified portfolio of real estate holdings owned and operated as the Cherry Cove Group, including residential, commercial, mixed use and hospitality properties.

Mr. Waring’s legacy and vast accomplishments live on as the Cherry Cove Group, still with its corporate offices based in Lexington Park, Maryland, employs more than 150 employees, and owns and manages properties along the East Coast.

We care about our community


Established in Maryland’s St. Mary’s county, Cherry Cove’s founder has always shown genuine care and concern for the Southern Maryland area. His compassion is reflected in the many philanthropies that our business donates to and sponsors. 

Philanthropic service is a major cornerstone of our company’s values and principles we hold. Our group invests in public initiatives that support local economic growth and benefits families in the area. We strive to “pay it forward” and step in for community efforts during times when our local friends need a helping hand.
