County Home items up for auction
Furniture and equipment from the Putnam County home will go on the auction block this Saturday at 4 p.m. at The Little Dude Ranch on U.S. 231 N. just outside Greencastle.
Among the many items for sale is State Farm hickory wood furniture, small appliances, dishes, lamps, chests, chairs and hundreds of items taken out of the now closed home.
On Nov. 11, Lawson Auctioneers will sell off parcels of land surrounding the old home. This auction will take place at 6 p.m. at the Dixie Chopper Convention Center at the Putnam County Airport.
No decision has been made as to what will become of the home itself.
An area containing unmarked graves will be fenced off and maintained by either the county or the Cemetery Board.
For information about the land parcels or auction items, contact County Planner Kim Hyten at 653-1704.
