Folly Ranch, Inc. is included with this property.


Fantastic recreation ranch for sale.

In 1919, Eleanor Donnelley from the Chicago publishing family, purchased Folly Ranch after having spent time as a guest at "Tepee"- a guest ranch that borders it to the North. She fell in love with the area, as so many do, borrowed the money and bought it. Her father paid back the debts for which she said was "pure folly"...hence the name Folly Ranch.

Nestled into a private valley with its own lake and a stream passing through, Folly Ranch represents the ultimate mountain retreat. It is situated in the Big Horn Mountains about 30 minutes above the town of Big Horn. The 400+/- acre property is lightly timbered with open grassy parks and sits as a private ranch in the Bighorn National Forest, which offers some of the most beautiful open park riding/hiking in Wyoming.

Folly Ranch is accessed via Red Grade Road. It's bordered on 3 sides to the West, East and South by the Bighorn National Forest and by "Tepee" Ranch to the North. The Big Horn National Forest offers a friendly and diverse recreation amenity with outstanding scenery, wildlife and fishing. The offering consists of 360 acres together with an additional 40 acres of shared ownership with adjoining land owner. This additional 40 acres has a pond and is shared 50/50 as an undivided interest. Should a prospective buyer desire the adjoining land and 100% interest in the 40 acres with the pond, the adjoining landowner would consider selling.

This is an outstanding opportunity to own a large tract of land that is a great recreation retreat bordering the Bighorn National Forest.

*Call or email us for information about easements and an option on the adjacent land that would add another 160 acres. We have additional maps and Google Earth outlines for visual reference that we'll be happy to send to you.
