The Crane House will soon have new owners, but not without a few provisions.
Tuesday, the City Council unanimously authorized Mayor Bill Applegarth to sign a contract selling the property to Nancy Long and Harold Christensen. Long plans to use the property, currently the Riverton museum, as an antique doll museum.
Because the home sits on two parcels of land, only the .15 acres in the city's possession will be sold, said City Attorney Ryan Carter. The home cannot be appraised while straddling the property.
The contract requires Long and Christensen to redraw property boundaries so the historic home will sit on an undivided piece of property. The city also has the right-of-first refusal if new owners decide to sell the home.
The city gains $63,000 from the sale, which goes into its general fund, Carter said. Carter said the city does not yet have plans for the revenue.
