The 38 acres that would be home to a planned National Slavery Museum will not be going to auction right now after all.
A Fredericksburg judge today delays a hearing to decide if city attorneys could take over as special commissioners to speed up the sale of the land. A new court date is set for May 28th. It will allow the new lawyers for the planned museum to get up to speed. They will likely challenge the real estate assessment on the property.
A hearing on a clause in the lands' use is set for a Richmond court this Friday.
