One of the nicest properties around. The owner is parting with 20 acres to be surveyed and divided from a larger farm. The original homeplace dates back to 1834 and has been maintained with great care and attention to preserving the natural environment and history of the farm. The property available for purchase includes more than 1700′ along McKinney Creek. On a quiet stroll along the creek or trails, you are very likely to observe deer, turkey, herons fishing along the creek and other abundant wildlife. This is one of those unique properties where the attentiveness and care of the owner really shows – timber has been managed for decades and all of the fencing is intact and serviceable.

Please do not walk the property without an appointment. This is a working cattle farm with cross-fencing, gates that need to be kept closed, and a big ol’ bull that might greet you!
