WOW, WOW, WOW! This place (Chinqua Penn) has been through so much already, from the mishandling of the property when it was owned by NC State, and now this comes about. For years, the "foundation" that looked after the property for the university did all sorts of underhanded dealings, even putting up Betsy Penn's precious silver against bank loans, which they defaulted on, and it was lost forever. No telling what else was stolen that no one knows about. When Calvin Phelps came along, everyone was tickled because a new owner (a tobacco company owner no less) would breathe life into the property and not let it fall down or go down the tubes. That lasted a few years until now, and now its been seized by the Feds. So now the nightmare begins again. Pray for all the people who have booked the property for weddings and special events and may now lose it or have to hastily have to reschedule. What a shame and a pity.
I agree with you - but the mis-handling began when Mrs. Penn gave the property to UNCG.
