Artifacts and memorabilia from years gone by are being auctioned off this weekend in Osgood.

The Damm Theatre and Family Estate Sale is coordinated by Firehouse Antiques-Estate Sales of New Harmony.

The event will feature items that represent Osgood history and antique household items, as well as a memorabilia from the Damm Theatre and other local establishments in Osgood.

The Damm Theatre was bought in 1921 by Louis Damm and stayed in the family until it was sold to the nonprofit Reynolds Foundation. The last family members to own the theatre was Bob and Judy.

The items that were removed and stored away at the time make up the sale, as do the Damm family house and barn.

Bob has since passed away, and Judy, now remarried, has been gathering items for the three day sale.

“It has brought back some wonderful memories but this hard to do,” Judy said. “It has been very difficult.”

The Damm Theatre itself as well as the items currently inside it is not part of the auction.

The sale runs from Friday through Sunday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The sale will be at the Damm House, 139 East Ripley Street in Osgood.

The home will be sold separately by Judy.

“I really want it to go to someone who appreciates its history,” she said.

Judy thanked the residents of Osgood for the support they have shown the family throughout the years.
