This aerial photo shows the property (which is Tract 9, toward the right side of the photo) in relation to the other parcels in the area. Tract 9 is bordered along its entire east side by Highway “B” and along its entire west side by the gravel easement road. There is an existing trail which comes off of Highway B and crosses over Tracts 8-14. This is an easement for a gentleman who owns an 80 acre tract to the west. He uses his 80 acres for hunting, so he uses the trail during hunting season. The best access to the cave is on the east side of the property.
To take a look at the cave please click on the video below. I only had a small flashlight when this video was taken but it does give you some idea about what the cave looks like.

The area is full of deer and wild turkey. On this tract you will find multiple spots that could be excellent for building or camping. This tract is subject to the 5 basic restrictions as shown on our website (no single wide mobile homes, etc.). Also, when you do build your cabin or home on the property it must be on a permanent foundation (concrete) with a minimum foundation size of 600 square feet. A simple 20X30 foot cabin would meet this requirement, as long as it is on a foundation.
Here are the directions to the property: From Springfield, Missouri take Highway 60 to the east for about 40 miles, you then take the first Mansfield exit (Highway 5 going south). You will immediately come to a four-way stop. Go right at the four-way stop, this is Highway B. Stay on Highway B for about a mile and it will take a sharp turn to the left, keep going on Highway B for about another mile and you will cross a set of train tracks, the road will curve to the left and when it starts to straighten out you will see the property on the right side of the road (it begins just after the blue gate). To get to the west side of the property take a right on the gravel easement road about 100 feet past the trail tracks, now go about 1/4 mile and you will see the property on the left side of the gravel road. When you visit the property PLEASE print out the maps and directions we have provided as it can be tricky the first time you drive to the property. If you would like us to email you all of the maps and pictures just let us know. Feel free to go check out the property and walk all around. There may be a locked cable or gate at the start of the gravel easement road so please email us or give us a call and we will get you the combination for the lock.
