The historical Buck Creek Farm on the Brazos River has not been available since 1880! This is a very rare offering of a large live water ranch with stunning views, wildlife-rich wooded terrain, and very fertile soils located in an extraordinary bend of the river between Lake Granbury and Lake Whitney. It is located near the community of Nemo, just outside of Glen Rose. The property is manicured and has remained pristine. Buck Creek boasts 1/2 mile of Brazos River frontage, and being on the inside lower edge of the river bend, it has great access to the river. It has not been hunted in over 50 years. The pioneering family of Charles Godwin Jones came to Texas from Tennessee and in 1880 purchased this beautiful river farm from the State of Texas with a Sheriff’s deed, and Buck Creek Farm has been in the family ever since.
