Who Owns The Most Land In The Natural State Of Arkansas?
When it comes to land in Arkansas I am a landowner. I own a paltry six-tenths of an acre, but who owns the most land in the natural state of Arkansas?
The United States has a population of 331.9 million people that occupy just a small part of the 2.43 billion acres of land. Arkansas makes up 34.035 million of those acres. Arkansas is 29th in the nation in terms of total acres and fifty-six percent of Arkansas's total land is forest land.
Out of the 3 million people that live in the Natural state there is one person that owns the most land in Arkansas. The big deal is he is not from the state or even lives in the state. The biggest landowner is actually from the state of Washington and is a multi-billionaire and is worth 105.3 billion.
So who is the biggest land owner in Arkansas? Well, it is none other than Bill Gates, yes that Bill Gates, Microsoft founder. He is currently the biggest farmland owner in the United States with 242,000 acres and he owns 47,927 acres in Arkansas.
Bill Gates's property in Arkansas is the second biggest acreage that he owns only behind the state of Louisiana in which he owns 69,071. Check out the video of his farmland ownership in the United States.
Bill Gates is not the biggest landowner in the United States. That distinction goes to Liberty Media chairman John Malone. He currently owns 2.2 million acres.
