Silent auction set for Coultrap School items
The Geneva school district is selling items salvaged from Coultrap School, as it prepares to knock it down.
A silent auction is from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. April 13 and from 8 to 11 a.m. on April 14.
Coultrap is at 1113 Peyton St.
Auction items include desks, chairs, coat racks removed from the walls, historical glass doors from the original building, tables and other items.
Money raised will help pay for the demolition.
Winning bidders will be contacted between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. April 14, and will be able to pick up their items from 1 to 5 p.m. that day. Arrangements can also be made for winners to pick up items on another day, by calling (630) 463-3025. All items have to be removed by April 18.
The building, which started life as Geneva High School in the 1920s, has been enlarged four times. It was last used, as an elementary school, in 2009.
The school board will discuss the demolition timeline at its 7 p.m. meeting April 8 at Williamsburg Elementary School, 1812 Williamsburg Ave. It expects work to start by June.
