ROMULUS, N.Y. (AP) - Sixteen bids have been received for 7,000 acres of land that once were part of a sprawling U.S. Army depot in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.

Bidding on all or part of the former Seneca Army Depot property began in mid-December and closed Tuesday.

The property, most notable now for being home to a herd of rare white deer, served as a storage area for nuclear and conventional weapons and once was a focus of anti-war protesters. The facility was closed in 2000.

The Seneca County Industrial Development Agency says reviews of the bids by county officials could start next week. Neither the identity of the bidders nor the amount of the offers will be revealed until a winner or winners are selected.
