3593 County Road 124 Hesperus CO Real Estate

An extraordinary 670 acres and surrounded by San Juan National Forest, Parrott City Ranch is a one-of-a-kind property and home to the former Parrot City, La Plata County's first County seat. Dating back to the early 1870s, John Moss founded this land's rich history. It was also a mining townsite until 1898 named Parrott City. Now, the pristine, undeveloped land in LaPlata Canyon sits just under Parrott Peak with magnificent 360-degree views. Just small remaining mementos can be found linking back to Parrott City like the chimney flue from the dance hall. Historically, and still, a perfect spot for cattle grazing, this land has more recently been used as leased hunting grounds and dog sledding in the winter months! Having been owned by the same family since the 40s, the ranch has been well cared for as a piece of La Plata County history. This property offers many possibilities in Southwest Colorado with seasonal ponds and a short 20 minute drive from downtown Durango, this is a La Plata County gem.
