Carter building still up for sale

The Carter Building, 91 S. Main St., was up for auction Saturday, Oct. 6, but there was no winning bid and the building remains for sale.

Mickey Edwards, daughter of the late Robert Carter who owned the building, would only say that the auction “didn’t work out.” Carter built the three-story building as a toy museum six years ago and died in August 2011.

“We do have a couple of prospective buyers,” said Dave Stewart, who handled the auction. “We are still in negotiations with them on what to do next.” Stewart declined to give an asking price.

Edwards said she was not sure what would happen with the vacant building on Zionsville’s brick Main Street in the future.

“There’s a lot of potential for that building,” she said. “We are hoping to do something with it.”

The building was the largest single piece of the auction, but the entire toy collection, which was on display in the former museum, was auctioned off as well. The auction began on Friday, Oct. 5, and ended Saturday. Stewart said all of the toys sold for a total of more than $500,000.
