A local landmark featured in a major movie franchise is hitting the auction block.
The Viewpoint Inn in Corbett will be auctioned off at 10 a.m. Thursday in downtown Portland, according to a local real estate agent and a listing on ListSource.com.
Co-owner Geoff Thompson filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June 2011. A massive fire nearly destroyed the scenic location featured in the movie Twilight in July that year and then a judge placed the property in Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
A court-appointed trustee then determined the property was "burdensome to the state" and filed a motion to abandon it.
A judge granted that motion in late September 2011, which included the building and adjacent parking area.
State documents showed the owners owed $150,000 in back wages and penalties.
The auction will be at the Multnomah County Courthouse, 1021 SW Fourth Ave.
