219 Acres – 1,050′ of Road Front – Investment Timber – Hunting
219 acres +/- and over 1,050′ of road front Halifax County timberland and hunting land. Located on Shields Commissary Road in a remote area between Scotland Neck and the Roanoke River. The timber was harvested in 2016 and replanted using Generation 2 Weyerhauser saplings in 2017. The saplings were planted on 8′ x 10′ spacing. This would be well suited for anyone looking for a highly accessible timber investment tract. The recent timber harvest was clean and appears to have been chipped. The tract is leased for hunting by a local gun club. The property IS NOT in a flood plan and is one of the higher points on the road. The abundant road frontage makes access very easy for hunting or recreation. No soil or septic testing has been done. The property condition is well suited for grooming to suit by the next owner. The area is also know for trophy Whitetail Deer and Wild Turkey.
About Scotland Neck – Our Scottish roots are reflected in our name. In 1722 a colony of Scotch Highlanders led by Lord Nairn settled in the “neck” of the Roanoke River. The name Scotland Neck first described the small communities that clustered around this original settlement. Nearly 150 years later, a progressive citizen named John Hyman adopted the name for the town he was to establish in this thriving area of commerce. Scotland Neck was officially incorporated in 1867 and work began creating the spacious avenues and tree-lined median of the north and southbound lanes of Main Street.
