SPRING GROVE, Va. (AP) — A historic estate in Surry County is going on the auction block.
The 309-acre Four Mile Tree is scheduled to be sold at auction on June 26. The estate’s manor home and a caretaker’s cottage are both on the National Register of Historic Places.
Bill Londrey with auction company Tranzon Fox tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/UtaRUY ) that the highest bid is subject to approval of the estate.
The property was claimed in a 1625 land grant. The manor home was built around 1745.
