The MAIN AUCTION has been family owned and operated for over eighty years. Established in 1938 by Colonel Paul Owens. After many years of running the auction, Paul decided to sell to his nephew Robert Wesely. Robert had six children that all worked at the auction for the next several years.
In 1976, Robert sold The Main Auction to his son, Danny Wesely. Danny owned and operated the auction the longest, at thirty-two years. In the beginning of 2008 he sold it to David Wesely Jr., his nephew. David Jr. is the current owner of the MAIN AUCTION and works full time at the facility.
