Auctioned Alaska cabins sell for at least $6,500 each

The online bidding for six Air Force cabins in Alaska started at $25 apiece on Feb. 23. When the digital gavel came down — so to speak — two days later, each of the cabins had sold for at least $6,500.

The Air Force’s unusual online auction of the cabins from the now-defunct Seward Air Force Recreation Camp in Alaska, which closed in 2012, earned $40,660 in all. The cheapest cabin sold for $6,500 and the most expensive cabin sold for $7,100, said Christine Cimino, a spokeswoman for Government Liquidation, the surplus auction firm that handled the sales. The other four cabins sold for $6,765 each, Cimino said.
