Chinqua Penn Plantation

Back in August of 2011, my family and I visited Chinqua Penn plantation. Unfortunately, the site is now closed to visitors. Between April 25 and April 26, 2012, the entire contents of the house were auctioned in a bankruptcy estate sale. The owner had amassed a great deal of debt, and has been charged with misappropriation of nearly $8 million in funds from the cigarette company he owns. He also faces charges for unlawful trafficking of cigarettes, and may face jail time (see this story for more).
