This property, just outside the City of Leola, is truly a diamond located in the midst of the timber land of South Central Arkansas’ Gulf Coastal Plain. Located on the border of Grant and Dallas Counties, it consists of 166 acres, more or less, of improved pasture land, with plenty of amenities. It offers multiple recreational opportunities, as well as an income producing option. A unique home or lodge in a one-of-a-kind setting accentuates this property. On top of all that, it also surrounds a historically renowned Civil War Site, associated with the Battle of Jenkin’s Ferry, one of Arkansas’ most recognized Civil War conflicts. Although it is less than a couple of miles from town, no neighboring homes or farms are visible from anywhere on this property.
The property is fenced and cross-fenced, and has been long run as a profitable cattle/hay operation. Recreational opportunities also abound with this property and surrounding timber company land. Horseback riding opportunities are virtually endless. It teems with deer and turkeys. Three stock ponds are on the property, which have been well-managed, and offer fantastic fishing for bass, bream, crappie and catfish. The sellers presently hold a hunting lease on over 1,200 acres of surrounding timber company ground, which could possibly be retained by a buyer, if so desired.
The home or lodge is a truly unique gem, as well. It is a modern home, but built in the style of an old-fashioned dog-trot home of years gone by. It has complete living quarters on both sides, divided by an open congregating area between the two. You can close this area off with sliding doors in inclement weather, or leave them open to catch the evening breeze. The home is less than two years old, and features an aluminum roof. It sits on the bank of one of the property’s three large ponds. There is also a new barn located on the property, and a couple of other small out-buildings. It makes a perfect place for a family with horses, such as the current owners.
A distinctive addition to this property is the site of a Civil War battlefield hospital used during the Battle of Jenkin’s Ferry. It is recognized with a large bronze monument, erected by the Department of Arkansas Heritage, and the Arkansas Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission. The site, however, is not open to the public, nor has it ever been excavated or dug.
