In this undated photo provided by Historic Homes Marketing Group and Long & Foster Real Estate, shows the front of the Historic Perkins Home in Charles Town, W.Va. An important piece of Civil War history is going on the auction block, the 19th century mansion that sits on the land where abolitionist John Brown was hanged more than 150 years ago. Although the house was built 30 years after Brown's execution, the site is well known. It even hosts re-enactments of the hanging. The actual execution site is outside, marked by a white obelisk with a plaque. (AP Photo/Historic Homes Marketing Group and Long & Foster Real Estate) less
