A 236-acre piece of west Maize will be auctioned off tonight for commercial and residential use.
The Paul "Pat" Ewertz farmstead at 12500 W. 45th St. North, between 119th West and 135th West, will be auctioned at 7 p.m. on-site by Don Burford of Jeff Lange Real Estate.
The land, zoned single family, has been the Ewertz family farmstead since 1917, Burford said. It includes the family home, a Montgomery Ward catalog house ordered and built in 1926.
Used primarily as agricultural land, it is seen by Maize city officials as a mixed residential and commercial use area.
