West Feliciana Parish tract sells

Sep 24, 2010 | Posted by: pragmatist | Full story: www.businessreport.com

A 770-acre tract in West Feliciana Parish was purchased by Benton Land Investments for $1.4 million.

Tembec USA owned the property as part of their Crown-Zellerbach purchase. The acreage fronts on La. Highway 964 near Tembec and also on Thompson's Creek.

According to John Kean IV with Beau Box Commercial Real Estate Company, who brokered the transaction, 200 acres of the parcel are high land; the remaining 570 acres are bottomland located near Thompson's Creek and are subject to flooding.

"This [latter] portion of the property is great for hunting," said John. The site also has marketable timber and a rail station that once serviced the Tembec paper mill.

The property sold for about $1,820 per acre for the entire 770-acre tract.

According to Kean, the property will be used primarily for recreational purposes until market conditions improve.

Benton Land President, Steve Jones, stated "The Swamp will be drained, by the Parish at tax payer expense." We then intend to Develop the Commercial Tracts into a High Priced Brothel complex. This is in complete compliance with the Comprehensive plan that called for maintaining the Bayou Sara and Saint Francisville 'AMBIANCE" of the glory days of the West Florida Parishes and the Civil War, we so greatly want to return to!! We will once again raise the single Star on Blue Background, beside the glorious Rebel Battle Flag. Our time machine is also being funded by the tax payers and will be ready for the 200 year celebration. Seats are limited so sign-up early!

This land was purchased by Burton Industries. Burton Industries is owned by a local business man, who owns several other huge pieces of land in this parish. The intended purpose of the land will be for hunting.

Is there any of the Tembec property still for sale? What about the property that the port commission was trying to purchase?
