Tucked within the beautiful Ouachita Mountains and rich with history and lore, this 18.40 ac tract m/l resides on the southern side of Scott County in the Y-City community, approximately 13.9 miles from Waldron. The beautiful, sparkling waters of Mill Creek, a tributary to the Fourche Lafave River, run through the southwestern edge of the property and it borders National Forest Lands to the north and west. As quoted in Buried Treasures of the American Southwest: Legends of Lost Mines, Hidden Payrolls & Spanish Gold by W.C. Jameson, Circa 1983 and verified by local historians, this site is touted to have sheltered a cave believed to be the site of an ancient Spanish mine or used as a hideaway for Spanish gold bars. As per the legend of this property, in the early 1900s, explorers discovered a mysterious cave, finding very old mining tools and stone stairways leading to lower passages. The exact location or actual existence of the mine is unknown, however, by the seller/list agent, but locals report exploring a cave on the property in years past, and two have been located. The property is located with US Hwy 71 access and features a beautiful bluff setting with marketable timber and an amazing building spot with gorgeous Ouachita Mountain views.
