Duggar Real Estate Holdings and More

I often see the same questions and rumors bandied about the Duggar threads and someone digs up tax records and the like to clarify. I always say it's fun to speculate, but it's the most fun when it's based on facts! Put any good, verifiable information here and it'll be easier to find next time the question about someone's house or business license comes up!

At the third link above, I found a cool interactive map of parcel and ownership information for Washington County property ownership information and mentioned it here: http://www.freejinger.org/topic/23918-free-anna-duggar-and-the-m-kids-part-2-merge/?do=findComment&comment=1047584 Link: http://arcserv.co.washington.ar.us/flex/public/ Here's a screengrab from this amazing resource, featuring the Dowell house:

@sophrosyne checked out the map and noticed the two big parcels directly across from the TTH are Duggar owned, which I had thought we already knew. But! One of the properties (I haven't checked the other yet) is a recent acquisition!

We can now look up the parcel number over at http://www.arcountydata.com/index.asp, and we see the following:

Clicking the Duggar line shows the following:

I have no idea what it means. I'm going to look for a deed, if I can remember how.

Okay, here's the transfer info, with deed, and it's not such a recent acquisition. Purchase date is 9/5/14, if I'm reading this correctly.

Deed here: https://www.actdatascout.com/CountyHome/PdfViewer?Document=2014_00025915.pdf&Container=33 Why would JB buy this boring, unimproved parcel. At first glance I thought the houses on the southeast corner were included, but clearly they aren't. Did he really pay $400K for that? Oh, Jim Bob.

Superb thread, halcionne! (we got 'em by air and land now)

I was surprised too to see that the Duggars had acquired the second parcel across the road--I thought they only had the 40+acres parcel directly across from the commercial buildings fronting Arbor Acres.

And I didn't know the price (woo!), but I can see why that property would be worth blood money to him. I figure the two parcels together are the future site of 19 Kids Acres, an all-Duggar subdivision with four acres and a Duggmansion for each Kid. We FJers, though, will right(eous)ly call it Akeldama Acres. 

(I won't push for thread drift to wonder how the kids would choose their neighbors, but it's tempting....Would Jeer and Jed have a duplex Duggmansion? Would buddy team members group on cul-de-sacs? Would miracle Josie have a lamb-white marble Duggpalace, centered among the other dwellings and raised on its own little JD bulldozed hillock?)

Are they building their very own Jonestown? He is buy up properties, to keep the kidults close by and under his control.

Maybe he is planning some sort of tourist attraction or destination resort. :my_confused:

Quoting myself to clarify that it looks like $400K was for both parcels just south of the TTH. Searching either one at http://co.washington.ar.us/index.aspx?page=648 gives the same deed. It seems like that would make record keeping complicated, but whatevs.

$400k seems like a great price for two parcels. That would not get you much where I live. Perhaps he's  aiming for a Kennedyesque compound.  Nothing wrong with having everyone close. Yeah. Keep everyone close, JB.

Great thread, @halcionne.  You rock.

OK I can't read the damn thing.  How many acres did he get?  Land prices vary so much but 1k an acre is pretty average unless it is prime farm land.

I don't see why this aspect of the Duggars (i.e., purposely keeping the adult kids on a tight leash) doesn't get more negative attention. They might preach "leave and cleave," but it's more like "family forever together...or else."

Buying up the parcels across the road from TTH is a smart move. Jim Bob is probably afraid of heathens, paparazzi, and the liberal media using telescopic lenses. His best bet would be to buy all the property along the length their road. If the road doesn't grant easement to other property owners or roads, perhaps he could petition to privatize it.. I wonder how he'll combat drones.

There are 2 compounds in southern Utah like this and not polygamists. One is for the people that are owners in WWASP schools. That compound scares me so much I drive a few miles out of my way not to see it. Jim Bob would be too cheap to make it a true compound with walls, gates and security. I think he just wants people not to be able to stand anywhere closeby and take pictures in front of his house.

Well, he's very cheap, but he also seems to attract interns and lawn boys.  It's not a stretch to imagine future potential Duggar-courters using manual labor to get closer to the bevy of virgins JB still has at home under lock and key.

My childhood home was on a 1 acre block of land, in an outer suburb of the city I live in.  My dad's dream was to build four more homes - not to keep us close, but so my three brothers and I could all afford to own our own houses.  Living with my three brothers growing up was bad enough, no way would I have wanted to live next to them as adults.  One of them did build his own home on the block, but the rest of us moved away.  Education and good jobs gives you the option to be independent.  It will be interesting to see how many Duggerlings, who don't have either of these advantages, end up living on the compound.

Now with the scandals, I suspect JB wants both a tight leash and privacy.   He's learned that he can't trust Josh not to be forthcoming in anything, this is probably his worst nightmare: having no control over his kids and trusting they are toeing the line.   And there's the negative publicity.  Josh blew the family's main income, their financial security, their brand and their reputation out of the water.   I think JB is literally circling the wagons around his family but the big question still remains: how will he continue to support all those kids, and their eventual spouses / families?

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
