Historic Proctor mansion to be auctioned

Posted: Updated:

PROCTOR, Vt. (AP) - The historic Proctor mansion, built by Redfield Proctor Jr. before he served as governor of Vermont, is going up for auction.

The home, located in the Rutland County town of Proctor, was last auctioned by the Proctor family in 1995. Its current owners, Peg and David Boots, say it will go up for auction again Aug. 6.

Redfield Proctor Sr. founded the Vermont Marble Company. He, his sons Redfield Jr. and Fletcher, as well as a grandson Mortimer Proctor, all served as governors of Vermont at various times.

The stately brick mansion has eight bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. When the current owners bought it at auction in 1995, they paid $500,000.
