Water, water, water! Even the creek that flows through the property is named Water Creek. Both creeks have good flow throughout the entire year and sustain a population of native, cool-water fish including sculpin, darter, google-eye, smallmouth bass and madtom catfish.
There are a multitude of building sites to chose from including high ridge tops for distant views or nestling down in the valley and listening to the creek flow. There is also a wealth of building material to get you started if you choose the native hardwood timber and have it milled, or you select the stone that is layered up on the hill.
Hunting or wildlife viewing opportunities abound on the property for deer, turkey, bear and small game. The wildflowers are diverse and prolific. There is a very good fossil bed for hunting of a different sort.
When the heat of the day gets to be too much and you don’t feel like getting wet in the creek, explore back inside one of the mines on the property and envision what it would have been like a hundred years ago just before the mines closed down and the little community of Surepop dispersed. It stays a constant 58 degrees inside the mine. Interested in alternative building? Wall up the entrance to the big mine and build back inside where you can take advantage of the geothermal effect to lower your energy bills.
Located in southern Marion County and near the Buffalo National River, there are 205 acres of Ozark Mountain property to explore and enjoy for $445,000.
