Retlaw Hotel Sold

Fond du Lac’s historic Retlaw Hotel has been sold in an online auction. The auction was conducted over the last three days and closed at 2:30 Wednesday afternoon. The sale needs to be approved by Fond du Lac County Judge Richard Nuss during a hearing next Wednesday since the hotel was in receivership. It was closed on December 3rd. Local officials including the Downtown Fond du Lac Partnership and Fond du Lac County Economic Development Corporation have been working with a developer interested in the hotel. That developer was one of the bidders. The minimum bid in the online auction had to start at $150,000.
