Want a good place see Area 51? Well there’s a cattle ranch bordering the property that you can now buy. Really though if you wanted a prime spot to spectate this is it.

From the listing:

Cattle Ranch 140 miles North of Las Vegas, Nevada

Year round cattle ranch approx. 140 miles North of Las Vegas, Nevada. 40 acres deeded plus 40 acres patent claims. Cattle run outside year round. There are several improvements on grazing allotments as in water features and branding corrals. Main property has nice feedlot pens for weaning and shipping calves/cattle, 5600 square foot hay barn, 1248 square foot barn and 576 square foot shop. Ranch features 2 newer manufactured homes the large main home which includes 4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms with a wrap around deck and the other home features 3 bedrooms 2 bath which would make a great guest house. Total AUMs on BLM is 6296 plus permit for 250 head on Area 51. Ranch comes with cattle and equipment. Ranch runs about 750 head total.

Just two years ago there was a gathering at the famous Area 51 when Matty Roberts created a Facebook event called, “Storm Area 51, They Can’t Stop All of Us”.  Many people who wanted to attend either ended up going to the actual area or to the party that the event eventually turned into.

If you owned this property you could pretty much own the next event. Which we assume will happen as soon as it’s safe to start gathering again. Think of all of the themed merchandise you could sell if you wanted to!

The property is going for $4,500,000 and has a yearly property tax of $950. You could use this as a cattle ranch sure. But it would be smarter to make it a type of camping destination site so that people could bring their telescopes and binoculars and kind of just peek into the government property.

Also it’s important to note that the previous owners Steve and Glenda Medlin were able to work out a deal where they could step onto Area 51 in order to tend the cattle. They just needed to call over the radio first.

Here’s the listing if you’re interested. Even if your not it’s pretty cool to check out.
