New LogoAlaLandCo is proud to be offering for sale Muleshoe Bend Outfitters, a 1255+/- acre hunting preserve located on the banks of the Tallapoosa River in Chambers County Alabama. Muleshoe Bend Outfitters consists of 720+/- deeded acres, 5+ miles of frontage on the Tallapoosa River, 535+/- leased acres, a lodge, 2 bunkhouses, over 40 hunting stand locations, orchards, vineyards, BIG timber, and all the wildlife that comes with it. With 30+ years of intensive professional management of wildlife and timber, this represents an opportunity that is unparallelled in the market today.

muleshoebend (1)“The Bend” as it is called by it’s owner and steward, Dr. John Crook, is one of the finest hunting properties in the South. The property has been developed with a keen eye toward sustainability, both in the wildlife and the economic aspects of the timber growing on the property. The opportunity to continue building on this foundation is one seldom seen. Most “hunting plantations” have the benefit of a few years of management when these come to market. Dr. Crook has dedicated his time and efforts to this property for over 30 years. Thousands of mast-bearing trees have been established on this property. Miles and miles of trails have been put in. Countless hours have been spent perfecting the property to optimize it’s wildlife potential and economic return.

Muleshoe Bend Outfitters will be a turn-key operation, ready-to-go for it’s new owner. Offered alongside the real estate are the equipment used to maintain the property, vast files of information regarding property management, and the website, Muleshoe has been, and can be run as a pay-for-hunt operation. The website would be invaluable there. If a private hunting preserve or a family compound suits your tastes better, then the site could be useful as a blog.

More information about this recreational and INVESTMENT opportunity can be found by visiting our website, or by calling Robert King at 256-252-9239.

Clay County, Alabama History – The War of 1812

I ran across a very well-written article about the importance of Clay County, Alabama in the War of 1812.  It is written by a local historian, Captain Don East.  There is information about Andrew Jackson’s treks through the county and Creek Indian settlements in the county.  Very interesting reading for any of you who have property in Clay County or are thinking about it.

Tallapoosa County Alabama Land For Sale – SOLD!

SOLD!  This listing stayed on the market just a short 3 weeks!…Take a look at this one.  Read the post just previous to this one.  Property is selling in Alabama.  In addition to this one and the one in the previous post, Dave Milton just listed and sold another property in East Alabama in under a week.    Quality properties WILL sell in today’s market.  As I have said in a previous post, buyers do not care how long a property is on the market if it fits their needs and seems like a good deal.  I had another very interested customer in this property that put off coming to look at it too long.  If you find a property that fits your needs and is in your budget, it still pays to move forward.  This property is now under contract, but I have others that are still for sale.

Trip Report: Horseshoe Bend

Pictures from Horseshoe Bend 020The family and I had the opportunity to visit Horseshoe Bend National Military Park today.  The park is located on the Tallapoosa River near Newsite, Alabama in Tallapoosa County.  The park is on the site of a pivotal battle between our young republic and the Creek Indian Nation. Andrew Jackson fought the Red Sticks here.  The Red Sticks were a militant group of Creek Indians.  The defeat of the Creeks at this bend in the Tallapoosa River lead to the eventual cedeing of over 23 million acres of land by the Creeks to the U.S.  This is most of what is now Alabama.  There are walking and hiking trails, boat ramp access to the river, a driving tour, several beautiful vistas overlooking the battlesite, and of course the Tallapoosa River.  Inside the visitor Pictures from Horseshoe Bend 039center you will find a museum that tells the story of the demise of the Creek Nation, a 20-minute video about the battle, and many interesting books about the Creek Nation and early Alabama.  There are picnic areas too!  This is a great half-day trip for anyone looking to get out of the house for a bit.  The grounds are nearly perfectly manicured as the property is managed by the Department of the Interior.  Come over and spend half a day there…we can spend the other half looking and land we have for sale in the area.  Our office is just about 15 minutes away in Dadeville.  Get a little lesson in Alabama History, and indeed, American History while you are here.
