Westport First Selectwoman Diane G. Farrell today urged the owners of the 200-year-old Abel Bradley House on the Westport-Fairfield border to continue to negotiate a “reasonable” sale price with those seeking to save it from demolition.

Addressing a Town Hall news conference, Farrell said she was pleased that a Superior Court judge in Bridgeport had issued an injunction putting off destruction of the house until at least March 7.

She said she had met with preservationists and owners of the property earlier to try to come to agreement on price and urged them to “come back to the table to negotiate a reasonable purchase price.”

The owners of the home have set a $1.2 million price tag on the property while preservationists have said they have raised $850,000 toward purchase of the property. (See WestportNow Feb. 24, 2005)
