Cuchara River Ranch
The price has been reduced on this great Cuchara River ranch. The ranch has 160 acres of pasture, irrigated meadow, and almost 2 miles of river frontage. This nice fully fenced working hay ranch includes a historic stone home, hay barn, and pipe corrals. Approximately 100 acres are in irrigated hay production produced from the Senior Water Rights that are included.
Once known as the old Walsen Ranch it was originally a part of the Vigil-St.Vrain Land Grant in 1843. The founders of La Veta, Colonel Francisco and Daigre acquired the ranch in 1865. In 1890 Fred Walsen purchased the homestead land and built a wood storage shed, still standing today. Walsen sold 3/4 of his ranch water rights to the new Town of Walsenburg. Walsen also sold a 1/2 interest in the ranch to his father-in-law, J.B. Johnson. Soon after Walsen's death in 1906, the ranch was sold to Emmett Harrison, who built the original stone house around 1910.
