The public will be able to celebrate Motown's history in Detroit with an estate sale and live global auction.

MLive reports that the "Motown Mansion" of Detroit will be cleared of its contents in early October. The home was once owned by Berry Gordy Jr., founder of Motown Records.

Gordy lived in the 10,500-square-foot house from 1967-1969 as Motown stars The Supremes, The Four Tops, Smokey Robinson and Stevie Wonder solidified themselves in American musical history.

Furniture and memorabilia from that era will be sold to the public, some at a typical estate sale and some at a live auction event that could feature a visit from Motown stars.

The dates for the sale will be finalized by the second week of September.
