The sale of the former Antelope County Jail was an agenda item on Tuesday's meeting of the Antelope County Supervisors.
Realtor Larry Bartee of Elkhorn Valley Real Estate met with the board to discuss the procedure of a public auction and the time he needed to arrange it.
The former Antelope County Jail is being sold along with the old brick jail building that had previously been part of the Antelope County Museum. The museum's log cabin will be moved off the lot prior to the sale. It is not known at this time when or where the log cabin will be moved; that will be decided by the museum.
There was also discussion of the sale of a parcel of land owned by the county near Clearwater. The county acquired the 9.98 acre plot in 1917. The ground is located along the Clearwater Orchard road by the Elkhorn River. It was decided that both the jail and the land parcel would be sold on the same day.
The board decided to hold the auction on December 11 at 10 a.m. in the courthouse.
