With over 11 miles of the Vermejo River and mineral rights, this Land of Enchantment treasure is one and a half times larger than the state’s capital city of Santa Fe.
“It’s difficult to comprehend the sheer size of Dawson Elk Valley Ranch. It’s bigger than most cities and larger than many national parks… purchasing this ranch would make you one of the largest landowners in the American West.”– Listing broker, Jeff Hubbard, explained to the press
As noted in the article, over 11 Miles of the Vermejo River and approximately 17 miles of streambank meander through the heart of the ranch. Nearly surrounded by Ted Turner’s Vermejo Park Ranch, biologists estimate there are over 10,000 elk that roam the more than 600,000 acres that comprise the Dawson Elk Valley Ranch and its neighbor.
The property comes with fascinating history as well. From the Jicarilla Apache, Spanish, Mexican, and early American settlers to what followed – cattle drives, ranching, and mining, remanents of the historic mining town of Dawson can be found on the ranch.
