Mills Creek is a quiet timberland tract set on a gravel road along the Laurens ewberry County line. This very rural location makes a great place for hunting, ATV riding or any other excuse to get away from it all. The property also holds deer, quail, and rabbits. Access is great with multiple entry points from the county road onto good internal roads.
About 140 acres of loblolly pines were planted in 2019. These advanced genetics seedlings are free from hardwood competition and growing fast. A little more than 30 acres of older pines were established in 1996 and have been thinned twice and among the pines are a few small openings.
Mills Creek is a year-round stream that crosses the land for more than 2,000 feet. Older hardwoods and pines line the banks and fan out into low areas along the creek. A rocky ford provides access to the back part of the property.
Electric lines are present at homes along Poplar Spring Road near the southeast corner. The property has more than 4,000 feet of frontage along the county gravel road.
The tract lies about 21 miles from Newberry, 22 miles from Laurens, 56 miles from either Greenville or Spartanburg and 65 miles from Columbia. All distances are approximate road miles to center of town.
Directions to Land
From Cross Hill at intersection of Hwy 39 and Hwy 560 (U.S. post office on corner) head south on Hwy 39 toward Chappells. In about 5.7 miles, come to sign for Soule Chapel Church and turn left onto Soule Chapel Church Road. You will immediately come to a stop sign and turn right to keep on Soule Chapel Church Road. This road will become gravel and then intersect with Poplar Spring Road in less than half a mile. Turn left (north) onto Poplar Spring Road, also gravel. In about a half-mile the property will begin on the left. Look for three bands of pink flagging marking the property corner and a ‘for sale' sign at gate. Another gate, also marked with sign, enters the tract about a half mile further down Poplar Spring Road.
