leave a comment »

(DALLAS, TX) – Harrisburg Mayor Stephen Reed today auctioned off his concept of building a museum full of western artifacts to a man from Cheyenne, Wyoming, who purchased the idea for $1.75 million.

“I’m a huge history buff and I love the Wild West,” said John Steil, who cast the winning bid. “It just never occurred to me to build a museum about the West. In fact, I don’t think it occurred to anyone!

“While it would have obviously been a better fit for Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, I’m eager to give it a go in our neck of the woods,” Steil said.
