Central City buildings set to go up for auction
CENTRAL CITY, Colo. — Several buildings in one of Colorado’s gambling hubs are set to go up for auction later this month.
Real estate auction firm Williams & Williams recently announced that the bidding wars for parts of a 6.8-acre site in Central City that features 49,176 square feet of property will begin July 27. The selection will include historic buildings along Spring Street where low-stakes wagering is permitted.
Among the buildings up for auction are the former home of the local newspaper, the Register-Call, the original freight depot for the Colorado & Southern Railway and former jail.
“It’s an opportunity for a visionary or entrepreneur to reinvigorate and restore these charming buildings in a tourist driven town,” Rob Bridges, senior vice president at Williams & Williams, said.
Bidding will open at $250,000. Interested buyers will not be required to be on site, as live bidding will be available online. For more information on the properties up for auction, visit Williams & Williams’ website.
