We would like to thank all our friends and patrons for your calls about our well being, it truly shows how special our customers are. We did not receive any water in our building at the Livingston location. However, some of our employees had water in their homes and lost everything, some with no flood insurance. In the Livingston Parish community approximately 75% of homes had some type of flood damage.

We are devastated by this event but our community has banned together and we are on the way to recovery. Thank you again for your continued prayers.

History of Auctions

In today's society the auction industry has transformed dramatically over the past 2,000 years. Yes, you read that correctly...

Records handed down from ancient Greeks document auctions occurring as far back as 500 B.C. At this time, women were auctioned off as wives. In Rome, around the time of Christ, auctions were popular for family estates and the selling of war plunder. One of the most significant historical auctions occurred in 193 A.D. when the Praetorian Guard put the entire Roman Empire on the auction block.
American auctions date back to the arrival of the Pilgrims on America’s eastern shores in the 1600's and continued in popularity during colonization with the sale of crops, imports, livestock, tools, slaves and entire farms. Colonels during the American Civil War were the only people allowed to auction war plunder and today many auctioneers carry the title of “Colonel.” Auction schools came to the United States in the early 1900's. The Great Depression created many opportunities for auctioneers, as their services were needed to liquidate the assets of individuals and businesses hurt by the economy. reference: http://www.auctioneers.org/consumers/auction-history


A Peep at Christies (1796) - caricature of actress Elizabeth Farrenand huntsman Lord Derby examining paintings at Christie's, by JamesGillray. 

In some parts of England during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries auction by candle began to be used for the sale of goods and leaseholds. In a candle auction, the end of the auction was signaled by the expiration of a candle flame, which was intended to ensure that no one could know exactly when the auction would end and make a last-second bid. Sometimes, other unpredictable processes, such as a footrace, were used in place of the expiration of a candle. This type of auction was first mentioned in 1641 in the records of the House of Lords. The practice rapidly became popular, and in 1660 Samuel Pepys's diary recorded two occasions when the Admiralty sold surplus ships "by an inch of candle". Pepys also relates a hint from a highly successful bidder, who had observed that, just before expiring, a candle-wick always flares up slightly: on seeing this, he would shout his final - and winning - bid. The London Gazette began reporting on the auctioning of artwork at the coffeehouses and taverns of London in the late 17th century. reference: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Auction

The auction industry has a gross revenue in the billions yearly with the fastest growing sectors being agricultural, machinery, equipment auctions and residential real estate auctions. Even in a presidential year with low oil prices, the auction industry thrives.
Henderson Auctions  has been in existence since 1957 with a staff that has a combined experience level of 133 years in the auction world. We know how to market your assets, please call us today to discuss our flexible auction terms. 800-850-2252 office: 225-686-2252 fax 225-686-0647

Fun Facts:

  • The word “auction” derives from the Latin word “auctus,” which means “increasing.”
  • Rome was the first nation to license auctioneers.
  • Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius sold family furniture at auction to satisfy debts.
  • The “Magister Auctionarium” drove a spear into the ground to start the auction. Today, auctioneers use gavels many times throughout an auction.
  • Founded in 1674 by Baron Claes RÃ¥lamb, Stockholms Auktionsverk is the oldest auction house still in business.
  • Candles were used in the 1700's at auctions to declare the winner. If you were the high bidder at the time when the candle extinguished itself, you won the auction.
  • In the mid-1700's, auctions were commonly held in taverns. Elaborate and detailed catalogs for works of art were considered art themselves.
  • America’s first president, George Washington, was an avid auction buyer.
  • Jones’ National School of Auctioneering and Oratory was the first American auction school and was established in Davenport, Iowa, in 1906.
