Historic Virginia Plantation Sells for $7.1M

November 18, 2010

A historic plantation on the James River in Surry County has a new owner.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that Swann's Point Plantation was sold at auction this week for $7.1 million to an individual from Littleton, Colorado.

The plantation was part of a wedding gift to Pocahontas in 1614 from her father, Chief Powhatan, when she married colonist John Rolfe. The property was most recently owned by Stanley Yeskolske, a businessman who died several years ago.
