East Main and Market Streets contain the city’s finest concentration of historic residential properties, chronicling the rise in prominence of an Ohio River town from its pioneer days to the Gilded Age of the 19th century and beyond. New Albany’s Mansion Row was the city’s first designated historic district and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
The New Albany Historic Preservation Commission (NAHPC) is a city-appointed body that administers design review in New Albany’s local historic districts, including Mansion Row. The NAHPC works in cooperation with the City of New Albany and others to preserve the character and fabric of historically significant areas and structions for all present and future citizens of New Albany. Therefore, any exterior alterations must be reviewed and approved by the New Albany Historic Preservation Commission through the issuance of a Certificate of Appropriateness (COA). For more information contact the City of New Albany at 812-948-5333 or Indiana Landmarks at 812-284-4534.

TIPS TO HELP YOU WIN!
We know that the end of an online auction can be a hectic place. Here are some tips & things you should know to help make it a little easier…
Place your max bid and let the system bid for you. In the event two bidders have placed identical max bids, the first bid received will be the successful bid.
To prevent bid sniping, last-minute bids will extend individual lots using our ‘soft-close’ functionality.
- If a bid is placed in the last 10 minutes, the lot will remain open for an additional 10 minutes.
- If any further bidding occurs, the extension timer will reset to 10 minutes.
- If no further bidding occurs, the lot closes when the timer runs out.
