The old Schuylkill Trust building in Pottsville has been sold to the highest bidder, and it was a steal.
Bids started at $999, and the building ultimately sold for $90,000.
The winner is the Hassen Group of New York, an investment firm.
The new deed will be approved in 20 to 45 days.
The building was auctioned off in a judicial sale, so that means the property was sold free and clear of any liens.
The building has been in decline for years.
