The homestead is located on 10 acres within a 1,000 acre Land Trust Ecological Community (non-profit 501c3) with eco-centered by-laws followed by community members of Greenwood Forest in order to protect and steward the dynamic forest environment and river-community cherished by resident land-owners/community members.
In addition to the magnificent 10 acre property nestled in a dogwood and native paw paw grove surrounded by 100 year old white oaks, black and scarlet oaks, hickory, and pine forest, parcel owners also own 500 acres of protected 'common land' jointly with all members of GFA (Greenwood Forest Association) and have full access to enjoy trails and natural wonders that lie in the magical lands, caves, and streams directly adjoining the protected Ozark National Scenic Riverways Jack's Fork River!!!
Mountain View, MO is located through the woods and over the Jack's Fork River 9 miles to town and offers everything a small bustling town requires - shops/restaurants/motels/movie theater etc. Summersville is 9 miles in the opposite direction and is a very quaint town with a school, store and post office. West Plains is the largest town around (40 minute drive and offers more shopping/supplies/entertainment). Springfield, MO is about 100 miles away and is the home to Missouri State Univ.
Summersville School District is a small quality school district graduating roughly 20 students per year. My son had 12 in his Kindergarden classroom and I was incredibly pleased with the quality education that he received. Sports programs are emphasized in this rural area as are various outdoor recreational activities.
Greenwood Forest Land Trust Community lies within 1,000 acres of protected forest managed for Old Growth adjacent to the Ozark National Scenic Riverways protected Jack's Fork River in a very remote location supremely private and quiet eco-conscious community of like-minded allies - neighbors who live to care for the forest and preserve its naturally pure systems. It is a VERY SPECIAL PARADISE that has been nurtured by the residents for over 50 years with continued stewardship of its members.
