Massachusetts college selling campus house for $1

Published:

House sold for $1: Smith College is selling an on-campus house for $1 -- but there is a catch. The buyer must pay to have the house moved off the Northampton, Mass., campus, and that is expected to cost about $70,000. That doesn't even include the cost of a plot of land to move the house to, or the cost of hooking up the water, electricity and other utilities.

A school official told The Daily Hampshire Gazette (http://bit.ly/TAj6xv) the 2,332-square-foot structure built in 1860 was used as rental housing for faculty until the college decided to build new apartment-style student housing in its place.
