These more than 700 acres of picturesque mountain property have long been considered the most desirable location on the Stony Fork Creek watershed. The gently rising field between the two creeks was much used by the Native Americans and the earliest prominent settler in the area chose to make this track his first entry in the County Registry. He (J.C. Land) is buried on the property and in this same graveyard was also laid to rest the author given credit for penning the Ballad of Tom Dooley. The local area is the site of the events that inspired the song. Prior to the permanent settlers arriving, Daniel Boone had chosen to settle a few miles down the Creek on the Yadkin River where over many years he built three different homes. On many occasions he traveled through the property exploring this mountain area prior to moving further west with his family. Having needed to change with the times, this property with its more than 150 acres of meadows has been used for general farming, a dairy operation, a chicken farm, and now as a cattle and horse ranch operation. The plentiful water, gentle meadows, and good soils have successfully sustained all types of agricultural activity. A horse barn with eight large stalls and tack room is located between the creeks in a planned area that is surrounded by fields and pastures. This well planned area also has a very large hay shelter with several separated feeding areas and a large riding ring that joins the barn area. Across the creek near the road are several additional structures including another barn, a large open shelter, a gathering room with bath, and a restored structure (circa 18_) that in days past served as a general store and the local post office. This structure can now be used as a bunkhouse. In addition several large storage structures are located at the north end of the meadows. After a fast moving flow through the wooded areas and meadow of this property, Stony Fork Creek converges with its left prong near the center of the largest pasture. Both streams are excellent trout habitats and are easy to fish. Abundant flow from springs and several other pesineal streams that flow through the property are the source of the water supply for five lakes. Fishing the many different types of fish in these lakes is a delightful experience enjoyed by everyone and especially the young ones. Watching geese and ducks as they nest the edges of these lakes is just one of the many attractions for lovers of birds. Water and wildlife are everywhere! Wild turkeys can be seen in the meadows several times per day, whitetail deer are plentiful, and you often see the sign left by black bear that have traveled through during the previous night. The surrounding mountains are part of the property that protects a large portion of the view shed and offers the owner many homestead locations. An upper mountain pasture area is accessible by an approximately 2 mile gentle woods trail located entirely on this property. Drive the cattle up this trail with your horses or ride up and enjoy a picnic in the upper meadows. Mature growth forest will enhance your enjoyment as you ride and old homesteads are waiting you along the way and in the upper country. .
