PRINCE GEORGE, Va. (AP) -- A deal with a new potential buyer of a historic plantation in Prince George County should be completed in a month or two.

The Brandon Plantation went on the auction block earlier this year and had been under contract since late September, but the deal fell through, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported.

Todd Wohl with Premiere Estates Auction Co. said the buyer "couldn't get their ducks in a row," but several potential buyers have since expressed interest.

He has been talking with them and expects to close the deal in 30 to 60 days.

The property dates to the founding of Jamestown in 1607. The original owner of Brandon Plantation, Capt. John Martin, helped establish the first permanent English settlement in North America.

The property includes a 7,773-square-foot plantation home.
