GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A Greenville couple plans to buy and restore one of the city’s oldest structures so that it’s once again a home.

The Greenville News reports (https://grnol.co/2j1eBtp) Ryan and Jori Magg plan to pay $600,000 for the Beattie House, which was built in 1834 and stayed in the same family until World II.

The City Council voted to sell house and its 2.4-acre estate to the Maggs, who will live there with their five children. The deal is scheduled to close in March.

Businessman Fountain Fox Beattie built the house for his new bride in 1834, and it served as a residence for extended family over the next century. Until recently, the Woman’s Club leased the home for $1 a year and used it as a meeting place.
