Bobcat Sports and the Schroon Lake Tavern are the two big commercial properties in Schroon to be auctioned off at an Essex County tax foreclosure auction.
And Frontier Town, the iconic western amusement park in North Hudson -- that once attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors over four decades -- is also up for grabs.
The properties and parcels of land will go under the hammer April 30, 2014, at the Best Western in Ticonderoga. The auction will be run by Schroon Based Haroff Auction and Realty.
Among the properties in Schroon are a recently built home with water views near the hamlet of Adirondack -- with deeded access to beachfront (which you must purchases with the home as a separate lot) -- and an odd triangle shaped half acre parcel (which is land-locked) off Charley Hill Road near the south bound lanes of I-87.
Perhaps the jewel of the auction in Schroon could be almost 6 prime acres on the Schroon River.
Frontier Town will be divided into four parcels, the largest being the 88 acres where the main park once stood. Its assessed value is $568,900. Another Frontier parcel includes a Frontier Town motel on 28 acres.
