FORT MITCHELL, Ky. – There’s a tag sale going on at the former Drawbridge Inn and everything must go.
Lamps, tables, chairs, linens – everything inside the Northern Kentucky landmark is being sold over the next few weeks before demolition crews arrive.
“We’re going to have windows, doors, stained glass, chandeliers – anything that’s in this building is going,” said Alison Kabealo, president of Hotel Content Liquidators.
Sale hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.

The Drawbridge, on a 15-acre site on Buttermilk Pike near I-71/75, operated as a hotel, convention center and restaurant complex for 42 years before closing in December 2012.
When Jerry Deters built it in 1970, he helped cultivate Northern Kentucky as tourist destination, his nephew, attorney Eric Deters, told 9 On Your Side.
"Before the Drawbridge there wasn't really a hotel between the airport and downtown Cincinnati. There wasn't even a convention center. He was influential in bringing large groups to Northern Kentucky and the Mainstrasse area," said Eric Deters.
Jerry Deters died last July.
In June, a Bellevue company, Brandicorp LLC, announced plans to develop a mix-used facility on the site of the historic inn, which company officials called "arguably the best-located and most easily accessible site in all of Northern Kentucky."
In March 2012, the struggling hotel was sold at a foreclosure sale and the Pacific Financial Group, based in California, purchased the property for $4.5 million.
The hotel was renamed Drawbridge Hotel and Convention Center in 2012 after it was formerly called the Drawbridge Inn.
