Conestoga Auction Co. was founded in 1962 when two men joined in a partnership to continue the operation of an auction business which started in the early 1940's at Root's Country Market & Auction. It was first know as Root's Furniture Barn, then changed to Root's Auction Room by the partnership and soon after, to avoid confusion with Root's Country Market & Auction, changed the name again to Conestoga Auction Co., Inc. The auction location remained on the second floor at Root's until it outgrew its quarters. In 1975 Conestoga Auction moved across Graystone Road to the former Bargaintown Building where the floor space increased from 3,000 sq. ft. to 21,000 sq. ft. Our company is a consignment auction, selling for estates and individuals from across the nation. It specializes in antiques, weapons, toys, ephemera, Native American artifacts, coins real estate and more. Buyers come from all of the states as well as from abroad.
