On Wednesday, businessman and rancher Norman Nelson, bought the Pyramid Ranch in Gove County for $10 million.
Its 12,900 acres includes the Monument Rocks chalk formations, which have been designated a National Natural Landmark, as well as fossil finds and two graves of U.S. Cavalry soldiers.
Nelson owns First State Bank and land in Norton, Trego and Russell counties.
Nelson says he plans to use the land for his ranching organization and will expand oil exploration. He also says he's not sure if he'll continue to allow complete public access to the Monument Rocks, out of concern for liability issues.Read More Local News
