Free: 3BR, 1BA ranch-style house. You haul it away

Free house, fair condition. Delivery not included.

A central Pennsylvania township is offering up a house to anyone willing to haul it away.

East Manchester Township acquired the house and the property it sits on so it can eventually expand its municipal building. But rather than tear down the house, township officials are offering it to anyone who wants to move it somewhere else.

Township manager Terry Gingerich tells the York Daily Record the three-bedroom, one-bathroom ranch-style house is probably worth about $60,000. It's already been stripped of appliances and carpet, but Gingerich says the house is in otherwise fair condition.

Gingerich says whoever takes the township's offer and moves the house will also be responsible for clearing the lot so it can be built on later.
