LINDON, Utah (AP) -- Lindon is considering buying a historic building that was used for LDS church members to pay their tithing.

The tithing office located at 300 North and 100 West is one of the last remaining buildings of its kind.

The owner of the property contacted the city expressing concern about the possible demolition of the building during development of the property.

She says she didn't want the historical structure torn down but needs to sell it.

The 17,000-square-foot property was appraised for $160,000, but is being offered to the city for $100,000. The building would need some renovation.

The city is expected to hold two public hearings on the issue. Dates for those hearings have not been set.
