Items owned by a wealthy former resident of Deadwood are going on the auction block.
Henry Frawley arrived in Deadwood in July 1877. Over the next half century, the attorney represented the notable and the notorious, assembled one of the largest private law libraries in the country, and built the Frawley Ranch into one of the leading cattle operations in South Dakota.
Remnants of his life were maintained by his family through two succeeding generations. More than 300 items are being auctioned Saturday at Dakota Plains Auctions in Lead. They include books, furnishings, china and family heirlooms.
Auctioneer Rick Olesen says that if a person wanted to go back in time, "this is the guy you would want to be."
