Dallas County 166
Located just a few miles south of Leola is this historical property. There is 166 +/- acres of well maintained pasture land with a small amount of mixed hardwoods scattered around. On the property there are 4 ponds which are all stocked with bass, crappie and bream. There is a very nice 1870 +/- sf 3 bed 2 bath home built in 2018. The house is an open floor plan with large bedrooms and large windows around the house giving some amazing views of the land. There are some small sheds behind the house that can be used for storage. The property used to be a working cattle operation however it is not at the moment. For someone looking to start or expand their own cattle operation this property would be a great addition. The most unique part of this property is on the southwest side where there is a 32 acre section that is a historical grounds known as the Skirmish at Guesses Creek. It is where Gen. Frederick Steeles Union army left Camden on April 26, 1864, starting a retreat to Little Rock. Confederate pursuers caught up with them on April 29 on the Jenkins Ferry Road and began skirmishing.
There is great hunting on this property. You can find plenty of deer and turkeys. Another unique feature of this property is that the future owner has the option to have the 875 acre lease surrounding the property transferred. They would be made the primary lessor of the land and have the option to split the lease or keep it all to themselves.
