Looking to social distance within a short drive of Laramie, Cheyenne, and the Front Range? This property is a great fit. Conveniently located 21 miles from Laramie and 68 miles from Cheyenne. The Wooden Shoe Ranch is a historic Wyoming Homestead Ranch with multiple log buildings that could be restored to a useful state reflective of their history and a one-room schoolhouse. The house was built in 1883 by a well-known log craftsman and subsequently added on to several times. The ranch was operated as a Dude Ranch from the 1930s to the mid-1960s. With more than four miles of Sand Creek meandering through the property, there is untapped potential for a small stream fishery. Sufficient water rights and sub-irrigated meadows allow the ranch to put up hay each year for horses or to sell. The ranch has a modest set of nice improvements but is not over-improved. The property has a varied topography that ranges from irrigated creek bottom, beautiful rock outcroppings to grass-covered pastures. Rock outcroppings have multiple petroglyphs. The ranch is ready for your horses and has an indoor arena to make sure your horses always get the exercise they need. The current owner leases the pastures to a neighboring rancher for hay and fall grazing. Currently, the lessee puts up 88 tons of hay on average and runs 250 head for three months in the fall. Wildlife regularly inhabits the ranch, including deer, pronghorn antelope, elk, and the occasional moose.
