Neighborworks Umpqua selling farmhouse for a buck

NeighborWorks Umpqua plans to develop land at 2923 NE Douglas Ave. in Roseburg. But first, it needs to remove a 1911 farmhouse and outbuildings on the property.

So it’s offering them to anyone who is willing to pay them $1 and haul the buildings away by April 20.

The farmhouse has four bedrooms and two bathrooms and is 1,800 square feet. It’s been vacant for a long time, and the previous tenants stripped a lot of the interior materials out of it.

The Roseburg Historic Resources Commission has approved the home’s removal.

Information: 541-982-2952.
