The 2020 Guernsey County Forfeited Land Sale scheduled for October 7, 2020, at the Pritchard Laughlin Civic Center has been cancelled due to safety concerns.

While it was a difficult decision, we have decided to cancel the forfeited land sale due to the overwhelming response to pre-registration. It has been determined that we would be unable to safely accommodate all participants attending the sale.

The forfeited land sale will be re-scheduled for a future date. The Guernsey County Auditor would like to thank the community for their exceptional interest in the forfeited land sale during these challenging times.
