Natural beauty, rich history, and stunning 360-Degree horizon views - The Cassidy is the trifecta. This 48+ property in Carbon County, Wyoming features the Little Medicine Bow River to the north and Greasewood Creek, which runs through the southern half of the parcel. The Medicine Bow Mountains roll across the southwest horizon and undulating hills of the Shirley Mountains to the west.

It's no coincidence that The Cassidy evokes scenes from the Hollywood classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The property makes its claim in American history as the place that Butch Cassidy hid out after robbing the Overland Pacific Flyer. The infamous train robbery did indeed take place at Wilcox Station just a few miles from the ranch, and many claimed Cassidy made his escape hiding along the winding river banks and steep ridges of the Little Medicine Bow River.

But that's not the only secret this property holds. The town of Medicine Bow is famous for a fully intact dinosaur skeleton - “Dippy” - discovered in 1898, whose casts are now found in natural history museums around the world. In fact, dinosaur bones are still often found throughout the property. Who knows, you might discover Dippy's relative.

While sightseeing, watch herds of pronghorn antelope, wild horses, or desert elk make their daily treks to fresh water sources on the property. The property can also accommodate horses, cattle, and other livestock if fenced.

This hidden-gem property offers 235+ acres of Riverfront Commons, established and deeded equally to each of its ranch owners. In addition to owning 48+ acres of pristine ranch land, each owner also owns a pro-rata share of riverfront commons to use for camping, fishing, trail riding and sightseeing.

Plus, The Cassidy has close proximity to Bureau of Land Management (Blm) land. Half a mile east, you'll find 162 acres of land open for exploring and camping under the stars. 2 miles south you'll find 630+ more. Let's just say you'll never run out of ground to explore.

As for the necessities, electricity runs throughout the ranch, and all parcels include recorded utility easements, maintained gravel roads, low property taxes and abundant ground water. The area has multiple functioning water wells, with access to water at around 100 feet.

This property sits at a perfect crossroads to neighboring cities on all sides: To leave the property, take a short trip down the 0.5-Mile private drive to the paved main road. The Cassidy is just 10 miles to Medicine Bow (with public schools for grades K-12).
