Owning a piece of history from the University of Nebraska at Kearney is only a bid away.
Become the highest bidder, and the original telephone booth from Ludden Hall could be yours.
Beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 11, UNK will be auctioning off memorabilia from the recently demolished Case and Ludden Halls, as well as various items from across campus. The auction will take place in the parking lot west of the Communications Building.
Case Hall, built in 1930, was the oldest residence hall on the UNK campus; Ludden Hall was built in 1961. Both halls were demolished to make room for three new halls that are slated to be completed in the fall of 2007.
Among the items being sold at auction are numbered doors with hardware from Case Hall, and brass and glass mailboxes from both halls. Also up for auction are the original marble ledges from Ludden Hall and wooden handrails from Case Hall.
A limited number of bricks from each building have been saved and will also be available for purchase at the auction; however, the bricks are in rough condition.
