Va. Plantation Returning to Colonial Williamsburg

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Carter's Grove is returning to Colonial Williamsburg.

The foundation that runs the heritage site submitted the lone bid Wednesday for the colonial plantation on the James River. The bid was $7.4 million. The purchase includes 400 historic Virginia acres and a palatial house.

The sale is subject to approval from U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Norfolk. Court-appointed trustee Stanley Samorajczyk confirmed the sale.

The property is valued at just under $15 million.

The foundation had owned Carter's Grove until 2007, when a wealthy Virginian purchased it for $15.3 million. But Halsey Minor lost his fortune and couldn't make the payments. He never lived there.

Colonial Williamsburg had owned Carter's Grove since the 1960s.
