CUMBERLAND, R.I. (AP) - A Rhode Island town is trying to sell an old home to save it from demolition. The only catch? The buyer has to take it with them.

The town of Cumberland bought the land across from its police station to build a new public safety complex, but they’d prefer not to tear down the 19th-century home that currently sits there.

The town says they’ll sell the home to the highest bidder, but the buyer must arrange to have the house moved by June 10 to make way for construction.

Bids are due May 10.

If the building can’t be sold and moved by June 10, it will be demolished.
