Billie Creek Village will go up for public auction next month after a sealed-bid auction produced no acceptable bids.

The Terre Haute Tribune-Star (http://bit.ly/QvaQHJ ) reports the Parke County historic site's land, buildings and antiques will go up for public auction Oct. 20.

Jeff Doner of Key Auctioneers in Indianapolis says some sealed bids were submitted by Thursday's deadline, but all were declined.

Doner says no estimated value for the property has been released, and owner Charlie Cooper has declined to say what price he would accept for the property.

The popular school field trip destination about 60 miles west of Indianapolis includes two covered bridges, 30 Civil War-era buildings and a modern party pavilion on about 70 acres.
