Here is another piece of interesting-sounding property, in which I have no financial interest, know nothing about it, except what I read in the classified ad in the Salem News Extra (the free portion of the Salem News), dated April 11, 2017.

"NEW PRICE ON 82 ACRES w/1/2 MILE FRONTAGE ON THE BARNEY CREEK  NATIONAL FOREST ON 3 sides, 20 acres in luscious pasture, rest wooded.  3 BR, 1 BA home, DW, ponds & spring.  $199,500.  MSL #16039394SN

Note:  I think the house is probably a fixer-upper, but cannot verify.  Still, the creek frontage, plus spring is a real plus.

ilinda I was thinking it might be Salem, NH but it is Salem, Missouri. :)
I found the ad... Lovely. It does seem like a real deal.
A person would have to make sure their building sites were set up above potential flood areas. The little house is up a little bit higher....

I just looked on Wikipedia and noticed Salem is around 1184' in elevation.  We do know of something called the "Salem Plateau" which encompasses the area of Salem and surrounding area, and is a rather safe-seeming area, due to its elevation, re flooding.  There seems to be less variation in elevation in/on the Salem Plateau than there is here in the "foothills of the Saint Francois Mountains".

ilinda, thanks for posting this info! 
I have wondered about higher elevations, plateaus in Missouri.
It surely sounds like it a good location.

Yowbarb Note: An ad from Land and Farm. Walton, NY, Elevation 1,207 ft (368 m)
This little home and acreage is about 3 hours NW of NYC. Just found out a couple of massive floods in recent history, 1996 and 2006... Walton is on the Delaware River, so this may not work, but worth a look, may be higher elevation - and nearly 48 acres!

Hunters Alert! If you're the rugged Individualist' type who knows that in order to bag the big one, you have to be willing to go where they can be found. Right? If you're the type who wants to hunt from the back porch stop reading now. However, if your preference is for a challenging hunting experience then maybe this is the place to make your own? These 50 surveyed - doe permit eligible - acres, are comprised of a variety of trees, ground cover and terrain. There's a year round brook and assuming you know what you're looking for, ample signs of white tail deer, small game and yes black bear!

There's an old workshop and a refurbished barn that makes for an excellent, secure storage space for ATV's and other equipment as well as a place to be out of the weather when it comes time to dress' the fruits of your labor. Very well priced at $124,900.

Yowbarb Note: This image and additional notes are from the previous post, ad.
I haven't checked it out real close. Any TN land purchased in the hopes of a survival location first needs to be aways from the New Madrid Seismic Zone... Will post more on it later. This property is about 7 miles from the New Madrid...I think it might be safe enough...whoever buys this will have to put some thought into it...

Cumberland Gap, Claiborne County, Tennessee Land For Sale - 6.7 Acres

"Tennessee offers a variety of wildlife, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, natural wonders, mountains and gardens - made perfect for outdoor adventures. At the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area in North Central Tennessee, explore the Grand Corridor, Neddle's Eye, Lover's Leap on Lookout Mountain, and panoramic views that allow you to see seven states. Cycling enthusiasts will love the Parkway, one of America's premier cycling roads that runs southeast from Nashville. At Ruby Falls in Chattanooga, find a 145 foot underground waterfall on Lookout Mountain. Nearby, the Ocoee River offers a wild ride for rafters and kayakers, and is popular for catching largemouth bass, yellow perch, catfish, and brown and rainbow trout. Find endless ridges of forest in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, where hikers can find over 800 miles of maintained trails to explore the great diversity of plant and animal life in these ancient mountains. The Cherokee National Forest is found in the heart of the Southern Appalachian mountain range, home to more than 20,000 species of plans and animals, 700 miles of trail and plenty of cold water streams and seven whitewater rivers. In Sweetwater, visit the mysterious Lost Sea, a Registered National Landmark and one of America's largest underground lakes. The lake is part of the extensive and historic cave system called Craighead Caverns. Tennessee is a hidden gem for golfers, with fairways like the five 18-hold golf courses, The Bear Trace, designed by Jack Nicklaus."

Cumberland Gap, Claiborne County, Tennessee Land For Sale - 13.5 Acres

Property type: Land   Parcel Size:13.5 Acres   Price:$69,500   MLS or other ID:391724

"A piece of the Tennessee mountains is now available in the Cumberland Gap area. 13.5(+/-) acres of mountainous land with a beautiful year-round creek, Keg Creek, flowing constantly over small water falls. From every area of this property the creek can be heard. At the very top you could achieve panoramic views of the beautiful country side. There is a single wide mobile home on the property that no value has been given, however it maybe can be restored and made habitable. Two other shed like buildings are also on the property. The best part is the wondering trails, some of which are for off-road vehicles, while others are used by wildlife in the area. While this may be a nice retreat from the busy world we live in it is close to conveniences. Lincoln Memorial University is in nearby Harrogate along with moderate amenities. From there just to the north is Middleborough, KY that is less than 30 minutes away with most of today's modern conveniences for shopping and restaurants. This property is worth seeing. Four-wheeled vehicles with the capability of off road driving will make the driveway climb okay. Otherwise, park at the bottom and enjoy a little hike."

Keep your eyes peeled, perhaps for individual classified ads, and here's why:
A piece of property near us, in same zipcode, perhaps 5 miles away as the crow flies, recently sold for $80,000.  It consists of 220 acres!  We could not believe it.  That is a price of decades ago, and we guessed that the owner was unaware of prevailing prices.  We never saw a realtor's ad, nor did we see a realtor's sign, or any sign.  Just all of a sudden there was a lot of bulldozing done (clearing too many trees IMHO) and talk of a new owner.  We figure there was a tiny classified ad that someone answered, and then bought it.  Lucky people.

We have noticed for years that the property appeared abandoned, or at least not lived in.  I am planning to take a pic just to show the beauty of it, and it also has river frontage as far as we can tell, as the low-lying area borders on the Middle Fork of the Black River.  The little house that sat vacant for years, decades actually, has now been emptied out and may just be someone's house, or temporary house.  I feel compelled to take a pic for two reasons:  the beauty of it, and fact that it has been sitting there waiting for the right buyer.  Who knows, maybe the owner died and the children didn't want it.

WOW ilinda, thanks for posting this!!
I hadn't thought of this tip, since I am going to have to get land far away from this area.
Maybe checking classifieds in the areas I feel might be good...
All The Best,
