Awesome Colorado Property
This 637-acre chunk of land is known as Vandemoer Ranch. You'll find it just south of Hartsel, Colorado. According to Wikipedia, Hartsel is a census-designated place and post office in and governed by Park County, Colorado. As of the 2020 census, this metropolis was home to a total of 38 people.
Founded in 1880, Hartsel is close to the geographic center of the state, and is often referred to as "The Heart of Colorado". The namesake of the community is Samuel Hartsel, a local farmer and cattle rancher who came to Park County in 1860 and left in 1908. He developed the Hartsel hot springs and built a sawmill, blacksmith shop, and a trading post to lay the groundwork for the town. - The History Press, Laura King Van Dusen 2013
