Absolutly a beautiful piece of property. This has everything you could ever want on a piece of property. Very fun to explore. I have found many things on this property from old 1950's car, part of a jeep, Campsites from the 1950's maybe before or after. Rock fireplaces in the middle of the woods. Historical things.
