Tribal Real Estate Transactions Summary

Feather News

The tribe sold two houses recently - one in Uncasville that looks like it could front the tribe's Fort Shantok property and the other house in Oakdale. Photos of both properties are posted above this article.

The Oakdale property is 66 Washington Avenue and was purchased by the tribe on April 16, 2002 for $142,500 from Jack Neel. The neighbor, Lois, said an addition was put on the house since its purchase by the tribe. The house was sold to Robert and Lauren Sholes for $189,000 on February 20, 2008.

The property at Fort Shantok is 27 Rankin Court, which is a street off of Massapeag Avenue, was purchased by the tribe on October 1, 1998 for $120,900 from Christine Bugbey. The house was sold to Craig and Pamela Massey for $223,740 on February 29, 2008. The backyard of the property abutts the Tribe's Fort Shantok property. No other information was available.

If tribal members know anything more about these properties - especially why the tribe is selling property fronting Fort Shantok instead of buying property there - feel free to contact us or post your comments on this site.

Hopefully, the Feather News can stay abreast of the tribe's real estate transactions. Let us know if there's anything we should be checking out.
