SHEPHERDSTOWN, W.Va. — A Jefferson County businessman purchased the 279-year-old Thomas Shepherd’s Grist Mill during a public foreclosure auction in front of the county courthouse Tuesday.
Tripp Spaur, a partner in Jefferson Rentals in Kearneysville, bid $365,000 for the property on East High Street.

Shepherdstown Mayor Jim Auxer, who also bid on the property, had hoped to turn the mill into the top symbol of the town’s history.
