[PHOTOS] Pieces of Waterloo History Up For Grabs With Black’s Building Auction
One of the big fixtures of the city of Waterloo is the Black's Building on Sycamore Street. Thousands of dollars worth of items from this building are currently up for grabs in an upcoming auction.
Earlier this year, the owners of the Black's Building, Vern and Donna Nelson, filed for bankruptcy. So, now the building is currently up for sale; along with countless items with some sort of Waterloo/Black's Building connection.
The auction is organized by Rich Penn, and all of these items are tied to this Downtown building. Most of them actually come from the Nelson's own collection.
These antiques range from paintings that have hung up in the Black's Building to furniture and even a vintage looking piano. The value of some of these pieces falls between $50 to $10,000.
Also, there is a plethora of stain glass windows that are also up for grabs.
