CULPEPPER, Va. (AP) -- A historic estate in Culpeper that hosted President James Monroe and the Marquis de Lafayette is for sale.

The 11-acre Greenwood estate is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's on the market for $995,000.

Owner Ada Newton Nalle Green tells The Culpeper Star-Exponent ( ) that it's hard to leave Greenwood where she's lived for more than 50 years.

Her husband, newspaper publisher Angus McDonald Green, died in 2012.

The estate's two-story plantation house was built around 1800.

Lafayette and Monroe visited the estate on Aug. 24, 1825, during the French nobleman's tour as "guest of the nation." He served in the Continental Army during the American Revolution.
