Furniture in the Living the Dream Home in Putnam County went on the auction block Saturday. The mansion was intended to be a home for needy seniors when it was purchased by the Upper Cumberland Development District. But an investigation by Channel 5 indicated the house had become the home of former UCDD Executive Director Wendy Askins, who had used public money to buy the furnishings. Askins resigned last year and will stand trial this summer on federal charges.
The agency hopes to get some of that money back by auctioning the furnishings. About 150 showed up Saturday to bid on the items.
The mansion will be auctioned next month.
