(FOX19) -

The contents of the famous home of a Proctor and Gamble Vice President will be put on the auction block this month.

James. N. Gamble was the creator of Ivory soap and the son of P&G founders. His Westwood mansion was demolished in 2013 after a multi-year battle between preservationists and the Greenacres Foundation, the organization that owned the home.

Items that were inside Gamble's home, which was built in the 1830s, will be up for auction on Saturday, Aug. 23. Victorian period furniture, a grand piano, oriental rugs, and hundreds of other items will be available, according to the auctioneer's website. 

The auction benefits the Greenacres Foundation and will take place at 8400 Blome Road at 10 a.m. Click here to see items on the auction block and for more information.
