One Dollar Price Tag on Historic Building Submitted: 05/23/2013
Merrill - An historic Merrill building will only cost you one dollar to buy, but the price tag is set low because there's much bigger cost involved.

The Lincoln House in Merrill is badly damaged and beyond repair.

It needs to be demolished.

The buyer would have to pay for that, plus have a plan to redevelop the site.

The city has been trying to sell the Lincoln House for three years. It recently rejected a bid of $156,000 to demolish it.

Mayor Bill Bialecki says if developers don't submit plans by August 31st, the city will ask for demolition bids again.
