AUCTIONEERS NOTE: This auction provides the opportunity to purchase land which has been owned by the Olson Family for many decades, as portions of this land have been owned by this family for over 100 years dating back to 1907. Throughout my 40+ years in the auction and real estate business, I have never encountered a more unique assemblage of rural land, with areas being a natural sanctuary of mother natures’ handiwork as portions are heavily wooded with 100+ year old oak trees and other deciduous trees which are a haven for deer and other wildlife. Early settlers to the Klondike region of northwest Iowa realized the significance of the area for survival, protection from the elements and production of crops and hunting of wild game.

A-26 (180th St.) which is near the SD/Iowa Border at Klondike, IA. PRELIMINARY LEGAL DESC.: A Portion of Gov’t Lot 1 and a Portion of N1/2 NE1/4 incl.

Parcel #1 consists of a generally square shaped parcel of land that presently consists of a combination of an active gravel operation and a parcel of cropland that is situated in the northerly portion of this parcel that lies between the gravel operation and Hwy. A-26 (180th St.). The existing cropland portion of this parcel, (consisting of approx. 18.56 acres), provides area for future mining of gravel and other aggregates for future expansion of the gravel operation. A subsurface exploration testing report to identify gravel, sand and materials deposits was recently completed on this property by American Engineering and Testing, Inc. and is available for inspection, with the engineer indicating that there may be in excess of 1 million tons of material in this site. Subsequent to the completion of any future excavations and the reclamation of this site, this property may have some potential for establishment and development of a rural housing site and/or recreational property.
