It's not every day that 236 acres of prime city property go on the market.
But on Aug. 26, a big chunk of west Maize will be auctioned off for commercial and residential use.
The Paul "Pat" Ewertz farmstead at 12500 W. 45th St. North, between 119th and 135th Streets 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 Wards catalog house ordered and built in 1926.
