One year later the land was passed on to the Virginia Cliff Copper Company for $1,000,000, although only $7,000 was ever actually tendered.

In 1866 the Miners Lode Copper Company (incorporated in NYC in 1865) purchased the property." [nps.gov] Today this is all part of the Shenandoah National Park and Skyland.
