Jeffs brother linked to land purchase near Carta Valley in Edwards County
A company controlled by Isaac Jeffs, brother of convicted FLDS prophet Warren Jeffs, purchased 424 acres of land in February of 2007 near Carta Valley in Edwards County, Texas.
The property lies in a rugged and isolated region of southwest Edwards County almost halfway between Rocksprings and Del Rio. Jeffs purchased the property under the name High Country Ranches. The land lies along Edwards County Road 650, just east of Ranch Road 2523.
The parcel was once part of the 6,530 acre Indian Gap Ranch. The property was subdivided into smaller ranchettes and offered for sale through Ranch Enterprises, a Kerrville real estate agency for $995 per acre.
Isaac Jeffs reportedly told people at the time of the purchase that he intended to stock the property with exotic game and to surround it with a high fence. However, deed restrictions clearly state that commercial and/or day lease hunting is prohibited on the subdivided ranchettes.
