PROPERTY OVERVIEW

137 Acres of incredible hunting and long standing history!

The Property…
Big buck habitat and great recreational hideaway.  The property is made up of think timber, creek bottoms, hardwood ridges, and wetlands surrounded by thick pasture. I have personally owned property in this area and can say with confidence that the hunting in this area is legit. The property has great access with trails through the property to access every part of the farm.  The current owner is not a hunter so there are no trail cam pics…but you can be sure we will get some trail cams out this fall if the farm is still available 🙂

History…
This property was once a fully operational brickyard, know as the Purington Brick Co.  It manufactured and sold bricks throughout the entire world…ranging from the streets of galesburg, to the Bazaar in India.  It was one of the Nations largest brickyards employing over 800 workers and cranking out over 150,000 bricks a day! For the full history…check out this link https://www.historicalbricks.com/resources/brick-history

Several of the past owners including the current owner, have produced some pretty decent income through the sale of the old bricks. They are everywhere! Check out the pics!
