October 26, 2012, Rockville, IN - All bids offered Saturday for historic Billie Creek Village have been rejected, but buyers are still being sought.

Charlie Cooper, owner of the property and chairman of the nonprofit Billie Creek Village Inc., said Thursday he rejected all three of the bids received by Key Auctioneers of Indianapolis at an auction in the village's church.

"The reason why is, I want to keep the village all together. I don't want it split up into three parcels," he said, explaining his desire to see the living-history center in Rockville remain a place where school children can visit and learn.
