Correctional land near Cottonwood up for auction | News
It doesn’t look like much, but it’s 7.24 acres of land that used to be home to the staff and families of Idaho Department of Correction. Located just outside the city limits of Cottonwood, the parcel features 18 condemned homes that are uninsurable and repairs would be too costly.
The homes were built in 1955 to house staff for the U.S. Air Force who were working at the radar station that later become the North Idaho Correctional Institution.
The land is being auctioned in “as is” condition on August 24 at the Cottonwood Community Hall Lodge, located at 506 King Street. The minimum bid is priced at $104,000. To be eligible to bid, you must place a 30% or $31,200 cash, check or money order deposit.
