Additional Details

We searched high and low to try and find any trace of "Lincoln Park" in Shilo section of Asheville, North Carolina with no luck at all. It would appear as though this might have been some sort of scam, or perhaps an honest project that simply did not get off the ground. Terms were certainly low enough; one could buy in for as little as "$1.00 a month." Perhaps the reason it failed.
