The Historic Wilson Ranch1
Maxwell, New Mexico
Very seldom can one find a property that hasnt been on the market since 1891! Even more difficult is to find an off-the-grid property that has no improvements that you have to apologize for. Thats the story of the Historic Wilson Ranch located in Colfax County +/- 20 minutes from Maxwell, New Mexico and Interstate 25. This historic property (+/- 1065 acres) goes back to the families that first settled this country and married into the Wootton family that built the Raton Pass toll road. Originally homesteaded with 3-4 family members, the ranch has a colorful history of horse ranching, cattle grazing, timber and even a sawmill. There are 2hand-dug wells on the property so water is not far. There are 4 stock dirt tanks on the ranch holding water most of the year if not all year. Hunting - The ranch currently receives 2 elk tags annually and mule deer tags are over the counter. There are trophy class antelope on the ranch as well as bear, turkey, mountain lion and small game. The water holes are incredible for dove. The ranch consistently produces trophy quality 6x6+ elk and trophy quality mule deer. The ranch is comprised of approximately 50% grass and approximately 50% timber. Huge ponderosas with pinion pine, oak, mountain mahogany and cedar make up the majority of the timber and the grass is noted to be some of the strongest in the country. Most of the property is fenced and there are five ponds located on the property. The ranch owns most of Raspberry Mountain and the neighboring properties consist of large private ranches. The original homestead cabins were built with timber harvested from the ranch. Theres a family cemetery located on the property and in the early days there was also a school. This secluded property lends itself to many possible uses but recreation retreat is NUMBER 1! Income: +/- $10,000 a year from tag sales and cattle grazing.
