Amazing piece of Black Hills History offered by Specialty Properties in this 2280 Acre South Dakota Ranch. Scenic meadows framed by red-rock canyon walls and rugged drainage bordering the perimeters of this majestic offering. The signs of days past remain as the cedar posts marking the trail and the wild roses the foundation of the Spring On Hill Stage Stop. For a short time in history the Cheyenne- Custer- Deadwood Stage traversed the center of this ranch. Box canyons and mountainous surroundings made the documented gold and passenger travel dangerous and short-lived. Now the peaceful and private setting is home to elk,grouse, mule deer, turkey and antelope offering a variety of hunting, ranching and exploration. Stong potential for land owner elk tag and possible candidate for conservation easement. The ranch has a good well with pipeline to five pastures, multiple access points and the mild climates of the Southern Black Hills. Located equidistant to Custer and Hot Springs, less than 1.5 hours to Rapid City.
