That is what Joann Harvey of the Trigg County Historical and Preservation Society, Inc., said Monday morning, although she couldn’t give an exact dollar amount at press time.
“I would say the auction exceeded our expectations,” said Harvey. “Trigg County really came through.”
Harvey also said they’re already planning a second auction – possibly during the first part of April – for the remaining items, with Magistrate Jon Goodwin and Trigg County PVA (Property Valuation Administrator) Michael Bryan returning as auctioneers.
At a Trigg County Fiscal Court meeting in September, Magistrates unanimously agreed to apply for a TEA-21 (Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century) grant for $312,500 for the museum. Alexander said they are finalizing resolutions for the Cadiz City Council and the Trigg County Historical Society.
