Tillable And Timber Acreage Adjacent To National Forest


Available for the first time in over 180 years, this original homestead property has remained in the same family since the 1840s. While the original homesite has been sold, the remaining timbered and tillable acreage are contiguous and offer some great recreational opportunities. Located in a remote and secluded area, this property offers approx. 2800’ of road frontage along Butler Bridge Road and features a 10+/- acre ag field that could be enrolled in a conservation program or kept in production for cash rental income. The flowing Blue Creek offers a year-round water source and is located along the southern boundary of the tillable acreage. In the middle of the property sits a 1.5-acre high point just off the county road that would be a perfect location for a cabin or campsite. A powerline clear cut bisects the property offering great browse and forage for the area wildlife along with good access to the majority of the acreage. Adjacent to the SE boundary lies approx. 800+ acres of Hoosier National Forest, giving the owners direct access to additional outdoor activities and plenty of room to roam. Portions of the timber acreage on this property have been select cut approximately 15 years ago while other areas show little sign of timber activity with numerous mature white oaks standing and a forest floor littered with acorns. Deer and Turkey sign can be found throughout the property with regular sightings in the surrounding ag fields. Morel Mushrooms, Ginseng, Yellow root, and wild blackberries can also be found on the property at various times of the year.  With some careful planning and strategically placed food plots and trails, this property would absolutely produce year in and year out and we’re sure you’ll want to hold on to it for another 180 years! Don’t miss out on this chance to own a truly secluded and remote slice of Southern Indiana!
