A Chance to Own a Piece of History
The Johnson Peak Ranch was also at one time called Meridian Peak. The ranch is located in between Iredell and Meridian, Tx just right off Highway 6, on Spring Creek Road.
In 1858 the Comanche and Kiowa raid near this summit resulted in the death of Peter Johnson and the capture of his son, who spent a short time with the Indians before escaping. The summit was thereafter known as Johnsons Peak, and later altered to Johnson Peak.
The highest mesa on this ranch is know as Johnson Peak, which has an elevation at its summit of 1,223 feet above sea level. Johnson Peak is in the portion of the Grand Prairie, which is known to have hilly terrain, shallow to deep stony cracking clay loam soils. The upper part of the mesa consists of limestone. The second layers of the ranch consist of Comanche Peak formation, and the third is known as Walnut Clays. The Walnut Clays are composed of Paluxy Sands. The lower slopes are characterized by the Glen Rose formation, which is known for its dinosaur tracks, and Ammonites.
The Johnson Peak mesa and its surrounding plateaus offer beautiful views of Bosque County. The formations and the surrounding areas on the ranch have a variety of vegetation including Jupiter Oaks, Cacti, some Mesquite and native grasses. The ranch provides ample coverage for wildlife; in addition there is one tank.
The ranch has a 2-bedroom/1-bath home that is being sold as is; and would make a great hunting camp or family retreat. There are several old barns, an old well house, metal buildings and some working pens. These improvements offer no significant value to the sale.
The ranch offers excellent hunting for whitetail deer, turkey, hogs and dove. The perimeter fences and cross fencing range in fair condition.
The Seller(s) own a portion of the mineral estate, which may convey with negotiated price.
