NASHUA – The long-anticipated auction of a historic Concord Street mansion scheduled for Thursday was cancelled Wednesday, apparently because a buyer came forward.

The property, known as the Frank E. Anderson House, and until recently, part of the former Mount St. Mary Seminary complex, was scheduled to go to “absolute” auction at 11 a.m. Thursday, but word of the cancellation came down Wednesday afternoon.

North End resident Imelda Murphy said she was disappointed because she went to last week’s preview and was anticipating watching.

“We were looking forward to it,” Murphy said of she and friends. “But I got two e-mails this afternoon saying it was cancelled.”

Justin J. Manning, president and CFO of JJManning Auctioneers, the Yarmouth Port, Mass.-based firm that listed the auction, couldn’t be reached for comment Wednesday night, but Murphy said she talked with him earlier in the day.

Manning confirmed the auction was cancelled, Murphy said, “but he wouldn’t say who bought it.”

The auction house’s website, www.jjmanning.com, also confirms the cancellation but offers no further details.
