Do you already have the deed or are you about to inherit land?
If you’re about to inherit land but the deed is not yet in your name, you’ll need to receive a transfer of ownership from the executor of the estate (who must be appointed by the court during the probate process), and you’ll need to make sure all the legal odds and ends are tied up before you make any long-term plans for the inherited estate.
