ALBANY, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a 4,620-acre plantation in southwest Georgia is being put up for sale for the first time in 50 years.

The Albany Herald reports that Magnolia Plantation is being offered for sale by Florida firm Jon Kohler & Associates, which has been named as broker.

The company said the land was purchased in the late 1950s by Charles Allen Thomas of St. Louis from the Nimmick/Minnix family and is now owned by the Thomas family. The Florida firm said Charles Thomas was a scientist and an important figure in the Manhattan Project, the development of the first atomic bomb.

The plantation is about 15 miles from Albany.
