A community group called "Save our Schoolhouse" was also trying to raise funds to renovate it
But Redmond Mayor George Endicott says they decided to sell the schoolhouse to Roger Lee for one dollar instead of the S.O.S. group.
"We finally concluded despite the passion of the group, the problem we had with their proposal is it was full of if we can raise the money and they wanted us to give them 30 more months to do that and the problem was the building continues to deteriorate."
Endicott says the vote was 4 o 2 to sell the school to Roger Lee.
He plans to move the house six blocks from its current location in the Dry Canyon area and renovate it to its historical roots.
