Dougherty County - Nearly 6,000 acres of Magnolia Plantation on the Dougherty/Calhoun County line are being auctioned November 26th. The land contains a farming operation including thousands of acres of pecan trees and fields of peanuts, corn and cotton. There are 92 acres of lakes and ponds, three homes and several farm buildings.

Charmare Incorporated owns the more than 11,000 acre plantation. The late Dr. Charles Allen, who was a leader in the chemical company Monsanto, bought the land in the 1950's. His heirs still own it.

The land will be sold in 37 tracks from five to 1,400 acres. The public auction will be November 26th at 10:00AM on the property off Leary Road.
