Auction information/directions

WKYC Photojournalist Mike Greene shows us some of the items you can bid on.

Elm Farm began as a dairy farm in the 1830's. In 1927, the Abell family purchased it and, in 1950, they began manufacturing ice cream.

The dairy closed in 1979, and the farm became a museum dedicated to the dairy and farming industry.

So, the family decided to sell just about the entire contents of the farm.

You might want to take home an old sign, antique butter churns, or even an old appliance that had several different uses.
