n Texas, many secret places long thought forgotten to the pages of history lie open and waiting for the curious, the ambitious and, often times, the adventurous. These unique venues not only invite visitors with their breathtaking landscapes and wealth of amenities, but

also with elements significantly less tangible. Beyond the modern luxuries, the native Indian folktales weave a greater magic, a sense that the spirit of the land−and the window to history itself−still survives. Stories passed down through generations of historic battles and magic healing waters stir the imagination, invoke a sense of adventure and welcome all who find their way to Indian Hot Springs Ranch.

15,000-Acre Hunting and Cattle Ranch Northwest Texas v Knox County v Benjamin

T

This ranch is 180 miles west of Ft. Worth, 102 miles north of Abilene and 119 miles east of Lubbock in the heart of big ranching country where real cowboys roam. The terrain is very diverse with level, rolling and high scenic vistas. Elevations range from 1,440 to 1,750 feet, overlooking vast expanses of mesquite, cedar and other varieties of trees and scrub brush. Big canyons such as Big Getaway, Little Getaway, Smelter and Panther provide excellent drainage areas for future lake sites encompassing 2 to 100+ acres. The ranch has been primarily used to run cattle for many years during which time the whitetail deer population has grown to noticeable numbers with large antlered bucks being spotted with helicopters and seen by ranch hands. Good populations of hogs, quail, seasonal ducks and geese are additional bonuses enjoyed by wildlife enthusiasts. Over six miles of the South Wichita River traverse the northwest quadrant of the ranch. There are 18 stock ponds on the property with eight pastures. A tremendous water advantage is the buried Cottle King Water Supply water line that runs 17 miles through the ranch, supplying fresh water to steel water troughs and the headquarters. The headquarters consists of two older homes, an equipment barn/shop, steel cattle pens with scales and a roping arena. There are 800± acres in cultivation primarily used for wheat grazing. The ranch also fronts and crosses U.S. Highway 82. The internal ranch roads are in good condition and access the ranch adequately. Realistically priced at $750 per acre. Negotiable.

The ranch is situated on a mesa in the semi-arid Chihuahuan Desert, consisting of rim rock country with vistas that go on for miles. This ranch will take you back to the Old West when life was wild and free. Every sunset is an open canvas on this beautiful high desert ranch that will take one’s breath away. The majority of the property consists of deep canyons with elevations ranging from 3,500 to 4,300 feet. Low-lying draws filled with black brush provide excellent habitat for deer and quail. Other plant life on the property are Chihuahuan species, such as agave, creosote, lechuguilla, mesquite, prickly pear, cholla, sotol, yucca and majestic ocotillo. Grasses include side oats, blue gramma and chino. This ranch is what many people have been looking for the last several years, but haven’t been able to find. This property will not last long on the market.

West Texas v Sutton County v Sonora At the headwaters of the North Llano River lies a vast legacy of Texas history and tradition known as the Fort Terrett Ranch. The ranch consists of 4,287 acres just off of I-10 in Sutton County. Fort Terrett was established in 1852 by the U.S. Army for frontier defense. The ranch is permeated with a unique heritage due to the buildings, which have survived from the U.S. Army era. The remains of the ranch headquarters include two restored and extensively remodeled officer’s quarters. A large added central room joins the two quarters. The fort hospital serves as living quarters for hired hands. Colonel Bainbridge’s old quarters accommodates special guests. The Fort Terrett Ranch has over two miles of North Llano River frontage. A 522' concrete dam creates Lake Sherwood. Both Lake Sherwood and Lake Lissa are stocked with catfish and bass. The ranch has seven windmills and three water wells with submersible pumps. A 170-acre, high-fenced exotic wildlife compound was built and stocked with axis deer and several varieties of antelope. The Fort Terrett Ranch is truly a breathtaking sight, bears indelible imprints of its past and imbues the ranch with an historic aura that captures the imagination and takes you back to frontier adventures. Don’t miss this unique investment opportunity to own a piece of Texas history.
