The Dolly B Ranch was first purchased by the Barnes family in 1882, and has been handed down for generations as a quality beef cattle ranch.  Named after grandmother Mrs. Dolly Barnes, this ranch has raised multiple generations of young men and women of the Barnes family, as well as entertaining for their friends.

The Dolly B features 55 acres of improved and native pasture, plus 35 acres of quality hay production.  Four ponds are strategically located around the property, and have some huge bass in them. Approximatley 3,210 linear feet of county road frontage and 5 seperate pastures. 

The old two story wooden barn is a real treasure!  If those walls could talk, they might tell tales of generations of kids playing in the hay loft; of sweat, blood and tears from working livestock in all kinds of weather; and of shiney new equipment being stored in her.  In addition to the barn, there is a 20'x80' equipment shed, and a set of cattle pens.

the farm house, built in 1930, has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  The beautiful front porch offers views of much of Gainesville and areas toward Callisburg.  Another living area was added on later, and features a woodburning stove, wet bar, and windows all the way to the cathedral ceiling.  The house is in need of some repairs and updating, but what a phenomenal farmhouse!
