The Nelson T. Gant foundation auctions an array of items with hopes to buy a house. The foundation has been working to pay the balance of the Gant House before the October 17th deadline. Currently, Century National Bank owns it, but the foundation hopes this auction will bring them closer to owning the house outright. The house used to be a bar, and the auction featured some of the old equipment, along with bar memorabilia. The house was packed full of bargain hunters bidding on things like refrigerators and televisions. Once paid off, the Gant foundation hopes to turn the house into a museum. Displays will feature people who lived their lives like Nelson T. Gant, helping the community.
