(Urbana, IL) -- An historic Douglas County farm goes up for auction today. The 960-acre Roller Trust Farm located near Newman will be sold at 1 p.m. at the Holiday Inn in Urbana. The farm dates back to the late 18-hundreds when the Roller family first moved to the area. The farm’s fertile fields and underground drainage system that was installed in the 40s earned the farm quite a reputation for production. The farm is being split into eight tracts ranging in size from 70 to 160 acres.
