Property Remarks

Fabulous building and site for another 200 member or less church, or great lot location for multiple family residences. Almost an acre of land in North part of town, with all kinds of options. Current church is planning on selling most of the personal items within the building relatively soon, but will leave/sell items to another church body wanting to use facility as a church. Tons of room, with many upgrades and additions done thru the years. Property being sold in "as is" condition, with no guarantees except for title since owners have not occupied in awhile. Good possibility of removing existing buildings and putting in multi-family structures as well.

Maxwell Wildlife Refuge

Known as Maxwell Wildlife Refuge, this unique area located six miles north of Canton possesses one of the finest herds of buffalo in the United States, along with elk and other wild game, birds and wildflowers.

The Maxwell Game Preserve which opened to the public in 1951 was established because of a provision in the will of the late Henry Irving Maxwell dictating that the bulk of his estate be used for the benefit of the public.  He instructed the handler of his property to buy not less than three nor more than six sections of land, suitably improve it and stock it with buffalo, antelope, deer, prairie chicken and quail.  Mr. Maxwell's will also stipulated that the proposed game preserve be under the control of the government; therefore, it is under the jurisdiction of the Fish and Game Commission of the State of Kansas.
