    119 wooded acres in southern Hopkins County. Located between Nortonville and St. Charles on Powell Rd., this land is a hunter's paradise or perfect for a home place. The land is rolling in the front and levels off at the back with several creeks and streams flowing throughout. The timber was cut 25 years ago and is nearing maturity again. Asking $1200 an acre or best offer. Water and electric are easily accessible. Call 270-821-5117 or 270-339-7822. You can also email me at tdoster@vci.net.


    I'm posting this ad because there are often people wanting to know about land. This sounds good to me and you could probably get it for 1K/acre or less.
    This isn't my land and I don't know these people.
    Just thought there might be people here, looking, who might want to know about it.

    Here is a plat map that goes with the ad:

    I don't know....I figured since it isn't mine and I have no connection to it I'd post it here. Lots of people post on this board asking about land, instead of going to the barter board.

    land that hs been logged 25 years ago is no where near having mature trees on it, ready for be logged again. what it has is small weak trees and lots of underbrush. just fyi. :)

    I agree. One of my properties was logged in 1964 and is just now getting some good sized trees on it - white oak, red oak, elm, ash, cherry, poplar.

    That land will probably have alot of "weed trees" & scrub oaks. Not much good for anything.

    No mineral rights? Big downer. Who has the mineral rights? Can they start removing minerals? (sand?)

    Asking prices is not selling price. I purchased a 113 acre piece about 5 years ago - asking price $160,000. Bought it for $80,000. Nearly square with frontage on two paved roads, 2 miles from a river.
