Odd Fellows building sold at auction in Owensboro
OWENSBORO, Ky. (WFIE) - A historic building in downtown Owensboro has sold at auction.
The Odd Fellows building at the corner of W. 3rd Street and St. Ann Street went for $610,000 Thursday morning.
Kurtz Auction and Realty held the auction. Their property listing shows it was built in 1890.
The three story building has 22,255 square feet.
It’s been used for restaurant and retail space for many years.
Eric Belcher, a professional pool builder, was the winning bidder.
He says there are endless possibilities for what the historic building can become.
“At an auction, you’re like a racehorse. You start to get a little nervous and tense before everything starts. And then, after the sweaty palms and everything dries out, it’s good to be on top of the winning bid,” said Belcher.
Belcher says he has no specific plans for the building as of now, but his focus will be on filling the second and third floors.
