DOVER  - Due to Gov. Mike Dwine’s stay-at-home order, Dover City Schools and Wallick Auctions are postponing the auction of items from the old Dover high school, originally scheduled for April.


“Safety is our number one priority,” says Dover Superintendent Carla Birney. “We tentatively looked at moving the auction to an online platform but decided an in-person sale at a later date would allow more people to participate.”


Unfortunately, the timeline for the building's demolition is still scheduled for this Spring, which means some items originally up for auction will no longer be available. 


Says Birney, “We, along with construction workers, will salvage everything we can to make available. But there will be some items that will not be kept. The demolition and abatement of the property must continue in order to make the best use of our new school and surrounding land.”


A new date for the auction will be announced when it is known. For further information, contact Treasurer Andrew Bache at
