Researched about my ancestry and found out my grandmother Lillian Yeakel married Charles Henry Bennett. My father is Earl Patrick Bennett and mother Thelma Mayer Bennett. On Wed. July 25,2017 my wife and I are driving from Louisville to Brandenburg to pay a visit to home. Just needed a history/ancestry fix

Can you tell me if this house is foreclosed on, and if so, is it up for sale or auction?

Thank you!
