Dubbed Spud Cellar in recognition of the structure that once neighbored the site, this 35-acre parcel was part of the expanse of working ranches that stretched south through the Brush Creek Valley in Eagle. Today, the property is a part of the Town of Eagle’s open space, representing a small but ecologically sensitive area between the Eagle Recreation Center and the Kaibab residential area.
Purchased by the Town of Eagle in 2006, this property is one of two parcels that comprise Eagle Valley Land Trust’s first conservation easement, donated by Elinor Allen in 1987. The other parcel (the Johnson Easement) remains in private ownership and provides a pristine buffer of pastureland between Brush Creek Road and Eagle Ranch.
