TERRA CEIA, Fla. (AP) - They couldn't give it away, so the owners of a 127-year-old house plan to demolish it.
The Bradenton Herald (http://bit.ly/zw08th ) reports the house belonged to Mary Rich, who died at age 91 four years ago. She willed it to people who live out of town and didn't want to restore the house.
So, they offered it free to anyone who would pay to have it moved off the property in Terra Ceia, which is south of St. Petersburg.
Though attorney David Levin received 14 responses to the heirs' offer, officials say no one followed through.
The Historic Preservation Board recently approved a permit to demolish the house.
There was no word on when the house will be destroyed.
