A Texas ranch is on the market and it comes with an outlaw legend... and treasure

Less than 80 miles outside of Fort Worth, Texas sits S&S Ranch. The Palo Pinto County property is currently on the market; however, prime cattle country is not the only thing it has to offer.

S&S sits on 2,600-acres and includes a historic stone house, cattle pens, and stock tanks. “The ranch is capable of easily running 105 to 130 head of cattle without overgrazing,” according to Steve Sikes of Texas Ranches Real Estate.

However, the most interesting part of this listing might be that Sam Bass Hollows runs through the property. Sam Bass was a historic outlaw and train robber from Indiana.

The legend goes that while on the run, he stashed some of his treasures in this area and was killed before he had a chance to recover it, according to Lone Star Treasures. The loot comes from his stagecoach, bank, and train robberies. According to Texas law-- finders keepers!

The listing is being handled by Texas Ranches Real Estate and Burt Ladner Realty Estate; the asking price is $22.5 million dollars.
