Introducing a wonderful new property in Meigs County Ohio that gives new meaning to the term Sweet 16. This beautiful 16 acre paradise has almost a half mile of frontage on the East Branch of the Shade River and has a newly-installed gravel driveway leading back to an awesome destination site for a cabin build or camper spot. The property has nice mature woods with lots of oaks and also lush creek bottom areas as well. The deer and turkey sign everywhere will attest to how good the hunting is.
