MATHEWS, Va. (AP) - A historic 18th century plantation along the North River in Mathews County will be sold at auction in July.

The 617-acre Green Plains plantation includes a mansion, five bungalows and a pier. The estate was established in the late 1700s by the Roy family.

Current owner Dorothy Long tells The Daily Press (https://bit.ly/1dDbuV8 ) that she is selling the estate at auction after trying to sell the property traditionally. She says she’s ready to move on from the property.

Long’s father, former Texaco chairman Augustus C. Long, bought Green Plains in 1959 from a member of the Cabot family.

Premiere Estates Auction Company has scheduled the auction for July 16 via sealed bids. Premiere says the property most recently was listed for sale at $12 million.
