St. Augustine, Fla. – A 166-year-old home goes to auction Thursday in the nation's oldest city.  It was built in 1850.

The auction will take place at 11 a.m. at the property at 18 St. George Street in St. Augustine. 

It includes a 6 bedroom home and a 2,000 square foot commercial building.

There is no minimum starting bid and the property will be sold to the highest bidder.

The property is known as the "Local Heroes Bar and Grill". 

The current homeowners bought the house in 1938 for just $2000. 

It's within a block of the famous St. Augustine "Castillo de San Marcos".
