Dick Withington has been having auctions in Hillsborough Center for nearly 60 years. Thirteen colonial buildings make up the original settlement of the land granted to Reverend Barns, Dicks Great, Great, Great, Great, Great, (etc.) Grandfather. Gazing out our window at the idyllic village below, its easy to forget that we are working in the 21st century.In the peace and tranquility of the surround-ings its easy to disregard the outside world. But, we are connected to civilization by the internet; we use the computers and digital imaging for cataloguing the collections and are able to stay abreast of all the current trends in the auction business. Since 1949, Withingtons auction company has been able to maintain an unblemished reputation throughout its long history.
Dick, who turns 90 in 2008, has worked tirelessly promoting the business he so loved. In an effort to preserve his legacy, Dick has chosen Larry and Marcia Leizure to take over the company and assure that the future of the business is strong. Together with Doll Specialist, Dolores Smith, we continue to run the company adhering to the highest standards for which Withingtons is known. Officially, in May of 2005, Withington Auction, Inc. was established to separate the auction portion of Richard W. Withington, Inc., with the provision that Dick would sell as long as he was able to stand up and talk! We have been fortunate to be able to learn from the master New Hampshire Auctioneers License #1, and make the subtle transition with his guidance.
