LEE CO., GA (WALB) - A small part of a well known southwest Georgia plantation will be auctioned off to the public for the first time ever.
1800 acres of the Senah Plantation once owned by Hanes founder Jim Hanes will be auctioned off next month.
The land has been divided into 25 parcels, and includes river front property.
Property like this doesn't get put on the auction block everyday. It's property that's been hunted by past Presidents and contains pieces of Indian pottery like this one we found. It's part of the south end of Senah Plantation and for the right price it could be yours.
Nestled in the trees and bordering highways 91 and 32 in Lee County, is Senah Plantation.
"Jim Hanes, the founder of Hanes Underwear assembled this property and we bought it from his grandchildren back in the 1980's," said Jay Williams, Senah Plantation Owner.
Hanes, spelled backwards, is Senah. Jay Williams kept the name and now, part of the original Hanes family's plantation is for sale.
"I have two young girls, two daughters who are five and ten and I'm kind of doing some estate planning and doing some reduction of debt."
"It's a tract of land that has not been offered to the public for over two decades," said David Hart, Rowell Auctions C.O.O. "In the past century, it's only had two owners, so to come out and be able to buy Senah or part of Senah is a tremendous unique opportunity."
Unique because the land is stocked with White Tail Trophy Deer, Eastern Appalachian Turkey, white quail, timber, and a mile and a half of riverfront property. It's land two U.S. Presidents have hunted.
"Richard Nixon, President Nixon was here as a guest of Mr. Hanes, and President Carter, Jimmy Carter was a guest of my father and myself," said Williams.
Auctioneers say there's been interest from as far as California and ultimately it will be the public that sets the price. In a tough economy, real estate can be a rock solid investment.
"We're fortunate to be working for a seller who's made it very clear, he wants this tract of land sold and that's what we intend to do November sixth," said Hart.
Auctioneers say if you're interested in the property, you need to be here November sixth or make arrangements to have a representative here, they say right now everyone has a chance at a fantastic view.
Rowell Auctions says there are no minimum bids set on the property, which will let the public decide what the land is worth.
