St. Croix County sells 550 acres at Saturday auction
A capacity crowd attended Saturday morning's St. Croix County land auction at Gibby's Lanes in New Richmond.
Most of the approximately 300 people at the event were observers, as only 32 bidding numbers were issued prior to the start of the auction.
But the drama was high as auctioneer Barry Hager opened up the bidding. He said the old real estate adage that "location, location, location" drives interest in land especially applied to this particular property.
