Nearly 1,000 acres in Brown and Johnson counties have sold for more than $2.8 million in two auctions. The highest price paid per acre was for 62 acres in Johnson County that went for $695,000.

The bulk of the Brown County property is either part of the Forest Legacy program, which protects "working forests," or considered Classified Forest.

More than 900 acres are located near Sweetwater, Green or Princess lakes. In all, the land was divided and sold as 15 separate tracts.

Wabash-based Halderman Farm Management & Real Estate Services, who handled the auction, says the lots includes "well-managed and marketable timber with superior recreation and hunting opportunities." The land was being sold by the Ida R. Meyer Estate and Pleasant Hill Farms LLC.
