KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Sauer Castle in Kansas City, Kansas, is up for auction according to a posting on the Unified Government’s website.

The estate, located at 935 Shawnee Rd., is a KCK landmark that is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Anton Phillip Sauer, a German immigrant who came to Kansas City in the 1860s, built the home and lived there with his five daughters, wife and her children.

Five generations of the Sauer family lived in the home, which sits on a 2.85-acre lot.

Now vacant, the castle is surrounded by chain-link fencing with “no trespassing" signs.

It has long drawn attention for its supposed hauntings.

Some people have reported seeing lights in the watchtower, as well as a figure standing and walking in front of windows.
