  • ROCKING W RANCH: Alice Walton's property is for sale.

Lance Turner at Arkansas Business reports
that Walmart heir Alice Walton has put her Texas ranch up for sale for $19.75 million to better concentrate on continued development of her signature project, the five-year-old Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville.

He provides photo from the agency listing the 1,400-acre property, where Walton raised cutting horses. It had been reported earlier that she was getting out of that business. AB quotes a news release:

In a news release announcing the ranch sale, Walton said it's time for her to turn her attention to other matters.

"I have loved this business and this way of life," she said. "But it is time for me to pull back and focus on other things that really matter to me."

Might a new spread be in the offing in Benton County? No word on that.

Check out more at Williams Trew Real Estate, which has the listing.
