The scenic and historic 50,685 acre Dawson Elk Valley Ranch is located near Cimarron, New Mexico, within an hour’s drive of Raton and I-25 (east) and the ski areas of Angel Fire and Red River (west). The beautifully diverse landscape that ranges from approximately 6,160’ to nearly 8,000’ in elevation, boasts abundant wildlife from antelope at lower elevations to trophy elk and deer that seasonally range from the lower river valleys to the high elevation forests. Basic ranching developments are in place including river diversions and irrigation improvements. The combination of natural scenic beauty and basic improvements provide for not only a scenic second home estate but the re-establishment of a functioning cattle operation, as desired. In the regional coal mining boom of the early 1900s, within this historic property was the thriving company town of Dawson, NM with a population of 6,000. Today, there exist fascinating remnants of the abandoned town, including a cemetery that is on the National Register of Historic Places. Water rights come with the property, and 50% of the mineral interests, including executory rights, are included with this offering.
