A West Virginia billionaire bid $25 million on Wednesday to purchase Mercer County's Anderson Circle Farm on U.S. 127. Forbes Magazine lists Jim Justice II was one of the 400 richest Americans. Unlike some bidders who wanted to purchase parts of the farm and development it, Justice says he plans to keep the property as a working farm with cattle, thoroughbreds and cash grains.
