LAWRENCEVILLE, Va. (AP) — St. Paul's College in Lawrenceville is up for auction — all 35 buildings and 183 acres.

An auction and real estate company is listing the historically black college for auction at a date to be announced. The historic property in Southside Virginia closed last summer after it abandoned its years-long quest to keep its accreditation and amid crushing debt.

Founded in 1888, St. Paul's had been affiliated with the Episcopal Church.

In a listing on Motley's Auction and Realty Group's website, St. Paul's is touted as being on the National Register of Historic places. Its 35 campus buildings in Brunswick County include a gymnasium, classroom buildings, administration buildings and dormitories. The property also includes an athletic field.
