BOONVILLE, N.Y. -- The future of a landmark building in Boonville is unknown.
An auction of the Hulbert House over the weekend ended with the current owner being the highest bidder.
The Watertown Daily Times says three people showed up to bid on Sunday.
Michael Daskiewich bid $100,000 to keep the historic property. NewsChannel 2 tried reaching him Tuesday to see what his plans are.
Local business owners in the area hope to see it opened back up as a restaurant.
“We would love to see the Hulbert House come back. The community needs a building like this – a historic building. It's had famous faces over the years. Jimmy Carter's brother was here back in the snowmobile races during the 1970s; President Grant was here. It’s just a terrific, terrific place. There's a lot of historic value,” said Diana Trainor, with the Apple Blossom Floral Shoppe.
Hulbert House, on Main Street in Boonville, opened in the early 1800s as a hotel.
