There are many great reasons to buy a Wilderness Preservation Community™ home site. We could tell you that it is one of the best buys in all of the Black Hills. That the Black Hills is a family area with great parks, diverse wildlife, quaint towns, a huge variety of arts and cultural events, sophisticated dining and plenty of shopping. But, to most of the owners, none of that really matters. What matters most are the spectacular views & sense of community.
Scientists have proven that living with nature is beneficial to your health. And when you own a home in one of these Black Hills Wilderness Preservation Communities, it’s also a lot of fun. Surrounded by expansive forests teeming with wildlife, the communities are just minutes from quaint towns and major attractions such as Mount Rushmore, the Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park, and The Badlands National Park.
These communities offer a lifestyle unlike any others. Located in the Black Hills’ most scenic areas, they offer designer homes and sophisticated amenities. Each home is carefully situated so the views are unobstructed – unspoiled by other homes or man-made structures. 90 percent of each community is permanently preserved in its natural state. The trees are treated and certified as a Fortified Forest™ to guard against wildfires and to protect your investment. And the communities offer common sense covenants to preserve the land for generations.
So far, Red Canyon Company is responsible for preserving more than 5,000 acres of the Black Hills’ most pristine land. As a result, the Wilderness Preservation Community movement was endorsed in an editorial by South Dakota’s leading newspaper, the Argus Leader, as the best way to preserve the natural treasure known to the Lakota as Paha Sapa (Black Hills).
Others have tried to copy our concept, but none have gone to such great efforts to preserve the wilderness and to make it so enjoyable for humans and wildlife alike. A limited number of home sites are currently available.
