Michigan School Turns to E-Bay to Sell Barn

By  | 

The Howell Public Schools has sold an old dairy barn that was holding up construction for a new high school.

Officials listed the barn on E-Bay and got a top bid of $15.50.

The district was against demolishing the building. Officials contacted barn restorers and preservationists but failed to find someone willing to take it. So they took their chances online.

Bidding started at one dollar and ended Monday after eight bids.

It will take about a week to determine whether anyone will qualify to buy it.

The winner must be able to post a $50,000 performance bond and have $2 million in liability insurance.
