Description

This document is a notification of an auction that is scheduled to be held at the front door of the Louisa Courthouse on the first Monday in January of 1936. The items in up for auction are tracts of land whose owners failed to pay the taxes on the land. This document shows the deliquent parcels in the different districts of Louisa County. As well, the document separates the white deliquent landowners from the black deliquent landowners. Every part of life, from public institutions to legal documentation, was separated because of segregation laws.
