No bids for Vandalia properties in Wheeling
WHEELING, W.Va. -- Three properties in Wheeling owned by the Vandalia Heritage Corp. didn't draw any bids during an auction.
About 20 potential buyers registered for the auction, held Monday. None expressed interest, even after Jim Behm of Behm's Auction & Real Estate reduced the minimum bids.
Behm said some potential buyers expressed interest after the auction, but he declined to provide details.
The properties are among more than a dozen that Vandalia bought from the Victorian Wheeling Landmarks Foundation in 2008.
Vandalia is selling some of its properties to raise money to continue its mission of historic preservation and redevelopment in Northern West Virginia. The organization lost federal funding earmarked by former Rep. Alan Mollohan when he was defeated in the 2010 Democratic primary.
