Purchased in 1961 this historic and rare offering includes 512+/- contiguous acres of cropland, timberland, hunting and recreational land located in the Black Gnat community in Taylor and Green Counties, Kentucky. This farm is rich not only heritage, but in timber, productive crop land and abundant wildlife. The farm is approximately 300 acres of timber & woodlands and 200 acres of crop land. The farm is partially bound by Meadow Creek to the west and a portion of Little Meadow Creek touches a northwestern portion of the farm. A couple of these areas were tiled just a few years ago to improve crop growth and yield potentials.
The old home place built in 1802 remains as an iconic piece of this farms history. It is known that Andrew Jackson, our 7th President of the United States also having his residence near Nashville, TN stayed in this home on occasion during his travels. The home itself is in need of repair, however the 4 layers of brick and mortar are mostly in tact as well as the oak foundation and poplar floors. Payne Stewart visited this farm with plans to design & development of a premier golf course upon these gently rolling hills of central Kentucky.
Wooded timber lands and food plots planted with clover are sure to attract the residence deer and turkey as well as those passing through. The manicured trails and paths a portion of the farm was a part of the Lexington-Nashville Stage Coach route are well maintained and provide easy access to most areas of the farm. E Meadow Creek Road Hwy 3098 and Hogards Chapel Road old county road are the two points of ingress/egress, which provide seclusion, although your less than 15 minutes away from Kroger & Wal-Mart as well as the business districts of Campbellsville, less than 2 hours from Lexington, Louisville, Bowling Green, Somerset and Elizabethtown, Ky.
