89th annual Tharp sale held PDF Print E-mail



From farm equipment to recreational vehicles, from lawn and garden to miscellaneous items, the collection was auctioned off during the annual Tharp sale south of Grant on Feb. 19 during breezy, cold, but dry weather. During the past 89 years, those attending the sale have been met with all types of weather—rain, snow, blowing sand. Founded years ago by Frank Tharp, the sale remains much the same with the Dudden family having taken over in 1978. Locally hired helpers assist on the lot during the sale which brings in sellers and buyers from all over Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Iowa; from as far north as Canada and far south as Mexico, from Nevada, Idaho and Montana to the west and Illinois, Missouri and Alabama to the east.
