The James C. Justice Companies purchased 4,500 acres of rural land in Albemarle County from MeadWestvaco on December 1, 2010. Their plans for the timber land south of Ash Lawn-Highland and Monticello are not known as of December 5, 2010.[1][2] The Justice family also purchased Wintergreen Resort in 2012.[3]

James C. Justice II is CEO of the family-run West Virginia company known for its coal mining, farming and timber operations. Justice bought The Greenbrier resort in 2009 in West Virginia when it was facing bankruptcy. Besides The Greenbrier, the Justice family has owned or developed other large recreational properties. According to Marshall University’s website, where Jim Justice received his undergraduate and MBA degrees, the family developed the Stoney Brook Plantation, a 15,000-acre hunting and fishing preserve in West Virginia’s Monroe County.[2]

The property tax payments for the land were not paid for December 2016 and June 2017, thus taking the land out of land use taxation. [4]
