Possible deal would sell only 17,500 acres
By Sue Tone | The Daily Courier
Negotiations between the owners of Yavapai Ranch and the Navajo Nation are underway for the sale of 17,544 acres in the western area of Yavapai Ranch, which encompasses more than 100,000 acres. The property lies 13 miles south of Seligman where the unpaved portion of Williamson Valley Road cuts through the ranch about 40 miles north of Prescott.
The area’s appraisal is nearly $60 million.
Ranch manager Fred Ruskin said he is in negotiations all the time with different people about various pieces of the ranch. This is just one of those “kicking the tires on the west side.”
