Public Auction Announced in Downtown Zachary

Posted by zachary on September 16, 2020

In an effort of revitalizing downtown Zachary into a destination for entertainment and commerce, the City of Zachary is taking steps to necessitate these incentives. Historic buildings contribute to the community’s sense of place and offer unique spaces for retailers and mixed-use developments.

Plans are underway to preserve the historic properties by selling them to potential commercial investors who we feel will be good stewards of the downtown properties.

In preparation, Southern Heirs Auctioneers will hold a public auction for the contents of four city-owned historical homes including, McHugh, Allison, Bauman, and Annison Houses. A public auction is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 3, and Sunday, October 4th.
