The city of Fort Atkinson is offering for sale (by sealed bid) salvage items from the parsonage property adjacent to the library at 106 W. Milwaukee Avenue. The library purchased this property recently and will be razing it in the not-too-distant future to provide more green space for now and other opportunities for library use down the road.
The house has incredible wood doors and trim, beautiful pine and maple flooring, architectural heating grates and other items that may be of interest to people who are interested in preserving and reusing them for their own projects. The wood used years ago is nothing short of spectacular and definitely worth recycling.
You can see the ad with all the details here. We have scheduled 2 days for inspection if you would like to see the items in person: Wednesday, November 2 and Saturday, November 5th. Both days the house will be open from 1 to 2 p.m. Appointments for other days and times are also welcome.
Bids are due at 2 p.m. on Monday, November 14th at the Municipal Building. Please help spread the word to anyone you think might be interested in this unique opportunity for salvaging a variety of building items!
