NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Nashville's historical commission may give a 130-year-old house free of charge to someone who is willing to move it to a new address.
The Metro Historical Commission says it has been "overwhelmed" by inquiries about the home on Eastland Avenue.
A few dozen people have offered to take the house, which is sitting on land targeted for development.
Officials want the 2,700-square foot, Queen Anne-style home to be moved by Feb. 28.
Preservationists hope to find someone who owns nearby land and can pay for its relocation, place it on a foundation and rehabilitate what has deteriorated over decades.
One local considering buying the home is Metro Councilman Jason Holleman, who renovated a historic home in Sylvan Park.
