LEWISTON, Idaho, Oct. 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The city of Lewiston has partnered with GovDeals to offer the former Anne Bollinger Performing Arts Center for sale to the public. GovDeals is the leading online marketplace for government agencies and educational institutions to sell surplus assets, including real estate and real property to millions of qualified buyers worldwide.
This property is at auction until October 17, 2023. Lewiston is asking all potential buyers to pay a refundable $500 bid deposit prior to placing a bid on the property. The deposit will go towards the final price of the auction for the winning buyer and will be refunded for all others.
The three-floor historic Bollinger Building was originally constructed in 1906 and has previously served as a Methodist Church and most recently the Lewiston Civic Theatre. The property features a main floor plus a balcony, an attic, and a basement, both the main floor and the basement offer over 5,000 square feet of space. The structure features multiple rooms, bathrooms, a kitchen, and four furnaces.
