SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — In February 2021, a 140-acre property, formerly the home of a reclusive sect of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), was sold in a sheriff’s auction to Blue Mountain Ranch, LLC.

Blue Mountain Ranch, LLC, which bought the land for $750,000, represented Andrew Chatwin, Patrick Pipkin and Claude Seth Cooke, three former members of the FLDS church who had won a judgment worth $2 million against the organization.

In 2022, the compound hit the open market, with Blue Mountain Ranch, LLC listing the property with Black Hills area company, Lewis Realty for nearly $7 million.

According to Custer County property records, the land remains owned by Blue Mountain Ranch, LLC. A call to the Custer County Register of Deeds revealed no new activity in terms of a sale in the past year.

KELOLAND News next spoke with Lewis Realty, who told us that the property has been sectioned up into different parcels and that those parcels are now under contract.
