About BLM Land

Section 13 BLM Map

This is a BLM (Bureau of Land Management), or "Checkerboard Map," of the Area around Lovelock Nevada.  The white squares represent one square mile "Sections" that were granted to the railroads by the Federal government in the 1860s. The railroads sold off the sections to finance expansion to the West. The yellow squares represent "sections" owned by the Federal government (Public Land) which is managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). The public land is widely known as BLM Land. 

The Benefits of BLM Land: Consisting of hundreds of thousands of open acreage, it is undevelopable and provides vast vistas which enhance the natural beauty of the area. Additionally it is available to adjacent land owners for hiking, horseback riding and, in some cases, hunting and grazing.

Cheap Rural Property has purchased several sections and has subdivided them into 40 and 80 acre parcels. We are currently selling section 13, marked by the red dot and red arrow.
