For anyone with fond memories of the Orchid Inn, a perfect opportunity to purchase their own piece of the Orchid comes on Saturday, Nov. 18, when the city auctions off the contents of the building.

“Everything in here is for sale,” said EDA Coordinator Kurk Kramer, when he showed this reporter around earlier this week. “Sometimes the deal is—everything that isn’t nailed down is for sale—but at this auction, if you want something that is nailed down we’ll probably sell it to you.”

Items to be auctioned fill the Minnesota Room, and Kramer said the auctioneers will also move throughout the facility, including the motel, to sell items.

The auction starts at 9:30 a.m. (doors open one hour earlier) and continues until the final “sold” is declared.
