A new development at DCI is Longhorn Hideaway, a development of numerous scenic lots just north of Barnesville. The development, located just off of Muskrat Rd., will be the first gated housing area in Belmont County. The planned residential sites are designed for people who enjoy privacy and the quiet sounds of nature. The sites are hidden right in the center of the Dickinson Cattle Co. Texas Longhorn pastures. Although each lot is 1.1 to 3 acres, they are surrounded by miles of open space, hard wood trees and frontage on Muskrat Creek. Residents who like to be located in the peacefulness of White Tail Deer, wild turkey and Longhorn cattle grazing nearby, will especially enjoy living here. Underground electric and phone lines will connect to each lot. The Muskrat Valley area is naturally hidden from roads yet is less than two miles from I-70 exit 198. For more information on this new and unique development call 740-758-5050 or visit the web site www.longhornhideaway.com .
