MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) _ A house in a Kansas college town is being
given away for free _ as long as the new homeowner moves it.

First Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, Kan., owns the large home built in 1890 and now wants to use the area for green space.

The two-story property includes six bedrooms, a garage and patio. The living area consists of more than 3,200 square feet. It has been used as a Manhattan Emergency Shelter in recent years, but has been vacant since last fall.

First Presbyterian pastor Cam McConnell says the church is willing to give away the house if someone can pay the hefty cost to move it.

The house has not been appraised because it is affiliated with a tax-exempt religious organization.

Anyone interested can contact the church at 785-537-0518.
