Apparently frustrated by a thwarted attempt to clean up 1.4 acres of disputed land on Lady's Island, the Beaufort County School has put it up for auction.

Bidding on 43 Alston Road (map) ends April 11 and currently has a price of $5,001 with 44 bids recorded. 

You can check out the auction listing here and The Island Packet writes a bit about the motivation for the sale.
