(WUSA) -- After years of debate, there will finally be a groundbreaking on a new Wal-Mart in Orange County, Virginia. It's expected to open in about one year.

The Wal-Mart is in the community of Locust Grove, which is four miles away from the original site Walmart wanted. Preservationists did not like that site, saying it was too close to the Wilderness Battlefield. The case wound up in court.

Walmart says its new facility will create more than 300 jobs.
