A map of land in Albemarle County drawn by President Thomas Jefferson has sold at auction for $30,000.
Quinn and Farmer Auctions had estimated the map to be worth between $8,000 and $12,000.
Jefferson drew the map, known as a plat, for more than 1,300 acres known as Indian Camp. He bought the property in 1795 for his friend, William Short, while Short was overseas.
