Property Description


This property consists of 346.2 surveyed acres and is being offered in 6 tracts. Three of the six tracts being offered have access to the Bourbeuse River. The railroad company originally built the lake over 100 years ago to pump water for the steam engines. The seller recently hired an excavator to dig below the footing of the spillway and added 12 yards of concrete. The lake is loaded with crappie, bass, catfish, bluegill, and grass carp.

This property was purchased by a privately held company in St. Louis in 1960. They created decades of fun and memories with family, friends, clients, and suppliers.
