Dunleith was built in 1856 and has been a bed and breakfast since 1976. It's among the most recognized antebellum structures in Natchez. It was previously owned by a local business man who declared personal bankruptcy. It was foreclosed on in January.

Sandel says Seal plans to continue to run the property as a luxury inn. He says Seal may also continue to run The Castle Restaurant on the inn's grounds.

The newspaper says Seal didn't immediately return requests for comment.
