A little over a year ago, we asked our audience to share their favorite school field trip location on the SouthCoast. Some said that the Plimoth Plantation was the best, while others claimed that the New Bedford Whaling Museum took first place. However, the winner was obvious. Sunbeam Bread was mentioned more times than any other location.

Unfortunately, the site is now up for auction.

Sunbeam Bread was located at 229-241 & 252 Coffin Avenue in New Bedford. The commercial/manufacturing property is actually two adjacent parcels. The site will go up for auction on Wednesday, September 25 at 11 a.m. According to JJ Manning Auctioneers, this auction will be considered an "Absolute Auction" due to the fact that it is being sold in its entirety to the highest bidder, regardless of price.

The following if from JJ Manning's official site:
