3 Vintage Bicycles

Hi there!
My name is Cambria and my fiance and I just recently bought a new house and found some gems in the barns on the property!
We found one 1973 Schwinn Bicycle, a Woodworth Woolco and a Montgomery Ward!
I have tried to find some information on the bikes and am struggling to do so!
We would like to use them as decor and hang them but very interested in finding out more information on them and see if any of them are worth much.
We would like them to be a nice conversation piece. They are beautiful bikes! Well to me they are!
I have posted pictures below if anyone could help me with any information on any of them it would be so very appreciated!
Thank you all for your time!

The Woolworth and the Montgomery ward and are low end department store bikes, really not worth much at all, the Schwinn is an old single speed, also not terribly valuable, may $100 to a collector. They are mid 70's so they are not old enough to be in the antique range. Looks like they will clean up nice, all the years of accumulated grime should come off fairly easily. It looks to me like they were a families bikes and as the kids moved on to dating and cars and things the bikes just got stored in the barn.
