One of the pioneers of emergency communications in West Virginia has auctioned off his memorabilia, along with his property in Harrison County.
Jim Jarrett had Joe R. Pyle auctions sell off his Jadewood Farms Estate Wednesday near Shinnston. The property sold on Wednesday for $374,000. Jarrett spent more than 55 years raising his family at the location and had compiled three unique collections of memorabilia.
“There’s been a lot of the trophy mounts here,” said Jordan Kiger of Joe R. Pyle Auctions. “He has been on several different hunts that he has been to acquire those mounts and then a lot of the pharmaceutical equipment and memorabilia has been through his collection for the past fifty plus years as well. Then you also have a lot of the fire memorabilia as well.”
The new Harrison-Taylor 911 Center that recently opened has been named after Jarrett.
