Hello. I am interested in purchasing land out West. I came across a lot of cheap land in Iron County (such as this: Beryl Junction, Iron County, Utah land for sale - 2.17 acres at LandWatch.com) and was wondering about the area. It seems pretty rural and not much infrastructure. Is that correct? Any chance this area will be built up in the coming years? Thanks.

Let's put it this way, I've lived in Utah for 22 years. I am a geologist and travel to remote places, over cattle roads, that most Utahans have never heard of.

I have never heard of Beryl Junction until you posted this.

You never know ...
You wait long enough, maybe it gets built up ??
Again, with what, who knows !
Right now, if you like remote areas, you will feel right at home.
Cedar City is within 30 miles, so OK to do your regular shopping.
What are you looking for in regard of *infrastructure* ?
Interested in sod farming ? No idea what else is going on there !
The sodfarms there are about the size of half of the St. George area !!

Just because you are geologist, does not mean you know every nook and cranny in this State.
I have met people who never have been south of Payson ...

On the other hand, I have been in Utah a lot shorter than you and I know exactly where it is ...
It even has a small airport ! OK, Airstrip ... !
(That is why I know where it is ...)
As a matter of fact, the area around Cedar City is dotted with small airstrips !

I agree with this, I certainly don't (as I've admittedly never heard of Beryl) but I have definitely been to some strange places..

Well maybe I just need to get down into Iron County more often. I feel like Beaver County has been a second home from time to time, but I've actually never been to Iron County for work, which is strange as it's named after a mineral.. *shrug*

History of that place is the reason for the name ...

<<< Coal in the canyons east of Cedar City and iron ore in the mountains west inspired the early Iron Mission—settlers who came to mine and smelt iron to help Utah be more self-sufficient, But the pioneer-era iron development didn’t work particularly well. Later mining and transportation turned the county toward a new era befitting the county name. Old Iron Town still has a fine beehive coking oven among its ruins. The west end of the county also has some historic and current precious metal mining.>>>


My friend Google came up with that answer !
Iron County


We often fly around that area and thus are a bit familiar it ...

It is almost ridiculous when you find out how many small airstrips you can find in Utah,

including those abandoned ones, which you can only reach by air !
We have a thing (hobby) to try to *hit* as many as we can find.

Water is an issue in Iron County. If the land doesn't come with water rights or other access, it would be hard to do much with it.
