Bozeman Officials Consider Selling Mansion
BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — The Bozeman City Commission on Monday plans to consider selling the century-old Story Mansion to the nonprofit collaborative Exergy Friends of the Story Mansion.
The agreement has the city selling the mansion for $391,222 and the buyer keeping the mansion's lawn a city park. The buyer must also finish restoring the building's upper floors and carriage house, and continue to allow the public to use the first floor.
The mansion was built in 1910 for the family of T. Bryon Story, a son of Nelson Story, a city founder and one of Bozeman's richest men.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports that the city paid $1.3 million for the property nearly 10 years ago and spent $2.1 million on renovations.
