You can name your price on three properties in western Franklin County Kansas. All three of these properties are being sold on a sealed bid basis. The buyer can decide what they are worth to them and if they are highest bidder the property will belong to them.
These three properties all lie along or near the Marais Des Cygnes river, so they are rich both in fertile cropland and loaded with excellent secluded hunting potential. Lot 1 is 75.75 acres which is 62% tillable and the rest is high old growth timber ground with lots of deer and turkey signs.
