ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - Aspen doesn't usually have a problem with real estate - but public officials are struggling to get rid of three historic cabins in the area.
The city owns a vintage 1950s cabin it has tried to sell online for as low as $661. The catch? The owner has to haul the structure away from a city park where it's sitting.
And in nearby Pitkin County forest land, the U.S. Forest Service is trying to get rid of two cabins on a parcel. Those cabins also date from the 1950s and need to be cleared from the area.
The Aspen Daily News reports the Forest Service is looking for benefactors to move and preserve the cabins. But if a buyer can't be found, they'll be demolished by Dec. 22.
