Judge orders sale of slavery museum parcel

Local Circuit Judge Joseph Ellis today ruled that the 38-acre parcel that was once slated to be the home of the U.S. National Slavery Museum in Fredericksburg should be sold at public auction due to nonpayment of real estate taxes.

The auction could occur within 30 days.

Ellis’ decision came after the baseball investors were unable to agree on terms of a negotiated sale of the property with the museum organization. It’s still possible a deal could be reached before the auction.

Check back for more detail later.
