  • The property is mostly level to gently sloping. Much of the northeast section is creek-bottom land subject to some flooding; makes great summer grazing. In this section there are scattered large trees and some woods mainly along the creek.
  • Several creeks meander across both the northeast and southwest sections of the 176 acres.
  • Southwest section is a pine plantation with many unmaintained trails. The timber represents future income potential, but other uses could include hunting, hiking, 4-wheeling and more.
  • There is public access to property via long frontage on US 79. Also, per county road map provided by Cherokee County road foreman, Greg Gregory, in December 2018, there appears to be access from FM 2274 via CR 4513 [see site sketch]. In addition, there is a General Notes reference to an "easement" on a previous Survey (dated 12-9-13), but the easement is currently unverified.
  • NOTE: Interested parties are encouraged to satisfy themselves as to whether the county road and/or easement in fact represents legal access between the property and FM 2274.

  • Does not appear to have been any maintenance on the cemetery in a long time.


  • All of the northeast livestock section seems to have good fence all around the perimeter, some cross-fencing and gates.
  • There is an old dairy barn in the northeast corner, concrete slab, rook seems mostly OK; usable condition for storage, but needs repair.
  • There are some cattle working chutes near the dairy barn.
  • There is a culvert crossing on one branch of the creek. A crossing on the other creek branch is washed out.
  • There is a pole barn/shed approximately 20 x 40 on the far south boundary of the northeast section.
