With spectacular panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains and nestled at the northern end of the Black Forest, Franktown—and its friendly population of 120—await your visit and the whickering of your horses.  Formerly a regular stop for the Pony Express and wagon trains heading in and out of the bigger city, Franktown is still a destination crossroads (at the intersection of State Highways 83 and 86) only 25 minutes from I-25 in Douglas County south of Denver. 

 

Franktown horse properties for sale near the major subdivisions in Franktown are like patchwork midst the heavily wooded ponderosa pine, large scrub oak and bubbling brooks on the high prairie.  Homes for sale in Franktown on ranchettes, Franktown estates for sale, Franktown houses for sale with acreage and equestrian facilities are tucked off the beaten path.  Quite a variety of horse properties for sale near Franktown are close to neighborhoods like Deerfield, Bannockburn, Russelville, Pinewood Knolls, Commanche Pines, Village Pines, Woodhaven, Burning Tree Ranch, Whispering Pines, and Fox Creek.

 

Franktown is named after James Frank Gardner, who staked a claim on land and built up a homestead.  A museum located in an old one-room schoolhouse tells the stories of the past with exhibits of archeological remains, farm tools, mining remnants and more.  In addition, one of Franktown’s most famous relics, a 1905 structure called The Grange, explains the unique political and social “farm club” known as The Grange.  The “downtown” cafes, Mexican restaurant and gift boutiques add to the small-town America experience.

After a stroll through town, unload your quarter horses and grab that picnic basket.  Outdoor enthusiasts, bikers and motorcyclists included, love to stop in town as they head to Castlewood Canyon State Park to the scenic views and varied terrain.  This unique landscape is carved out of the Black Forest and features sheer canyon walls, arid rolling trails and the remains of the century-old Castlewood Canyon Dam. Around the ruins lie miles of scenic hiking trails, numerous technical rock-climbing routes and excellent bird-watching areas. 

 

Open space abounds!  There are also Douglas County trails, the Chatfield State Park, Roxborough State Park and Pike National Forest to lure you to ride, hike, camp, fish, backpack, and even hunt in the healthy fresh air. 

 

Whether you are an amateur, a limited rider, a novice, youth, a versatility rancher or need equestrian activities to accommodate a disability, the state’s horse-loving population has created an opportunity for you.  Draw out the horse whisperer in your family during an American Quarter Horse Association Regional Experience in Colorado Springs or a Rocky Mountain Quarter Horse Youth Association event in Denver. 

 

The acclaimed and innovative Douglas County schools, along with a charter Christian school are very near and provide an excellent education foundation for children and youth.  Several reputable colleges and universities are available within 15 to 40 minutes.  There are abundant organizations, clubs, churches, community associations, parks, recreation and libraries.  And the townspeople have been really working hard on a plan that affords limited development opportunity maintaining the area’s overall rural nature.

 

So, whether you have developed horsemanship or simply appreciate being near the soft neigh and big eyes of a lovable old mare, this area will be easy to call home.
