Firehouses, Horse Stable, and More To Be Auctioned Off

View as Map

Two former fire stations, Bywater horse stables, and a visitors' center are just some of the city's unused properties being auctioned off at the end of the month. While most are in poor condition, the architectural value is strong. The property can be scoped out during three open houses, one this Friday, July 19 and the others July 26 and 30, all from noon to 2 p.m.
