Cheyenne, WY (AP) - About 5,000 acres of ranchland and buildings owned by the family of U.S. Rep. Cynthia Lummis near Cheyenne has a new owner.
Joe Spiering, a spokesman for the Republican congresswoman, says the transaction involved a land exchange.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports that terms of the transaction were not released by Lummis' office or by the broker that was involved.
The property involved is the Lummis Ranch South Camp. It was a piece of the Arp and Hammond Hardware Co., of which Lummis has a minority interest.
The property had been listed for $8.1 million.
The ranch includes a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house with a detached garage. It also has a barn and corrals.
