Acreage Wednesday – Save This Arkansas Old Abandoned Church For Sale On 1 Acre Under $40K

Discover this captivating abandoned church nestled among the rugged hills of the Ouachita Mountains in the quaint town of Cove. While the origins of Cove’s name remain a mystery, records trace its existence back to the 1850s. In 1876, Henry McDaniel acquired land here for his expansive farming venture, and by 1890, Cove had flourished into a thriving village boasting five general stores, three blacksmith shops, a drugstore, wagon shop, schoolhouse, sawmill/grist mill, and even a cotton gin.

This church, once shared by Methodists, Baptists, and Cumberland Presbyterians, may be the same historic structure from that era, although we can’t say for sure. What is evident, however, is that this old church is in dire need of restoration to prevent its eventual collapse.

Here’s your chance to own a piece of Cove’s rich history! This abandoned church presents countless unique opportunities limited only by your imagination. You could transform it into your dream home, create an enchanting Airbnb retreat, open a charming restaurant, or pursue any other venture close to your heart. Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity, complete with a new survey, and additional property is also available.
