Central Addition Auction Bid

Central Addition Auction Bid

Preservation Idaho and Buffalo Heart Homes did not raise enough funds to place the minimum required bid ($460,000) at the auction of the Justice George Stewart and Mary Wood homes in Central Addition. In fact the auction, which took place Friday, April 11, 2014, failed to result in the placement of a single bid.
