BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) - The former Coolfont resort in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle is going on the auction block.

An auction will be held June 21 at Cacapon Resort in Berkeley Springs.

Eaton, Colorado-based Hall and Hall Auctions says in a news release that Coolfont will be offered in nine tracts and combinations ranging from seven to 382 acres. Also included in the auction is an office building in Berkeley Springs.

Sam Ashelman established Coolfont Resort in 1961. He sold it to a Maryland real estate company in 2005. That company’s president was killed in a helicopter crash in 2006, and the resort closed that year.
