The Holladay City Council is asking residents to put a price on a piece of local history.
The city needs to build a new fire station on the land currently occupied by the historic Casto home, and city leaders are asking residents to weigh in on two options at a public hearing Thursday pay about $60,000 to move and preserve the home, or spend $10,000 to tear it down.
The house dates to the mid-1800s, when settler Santa Anna Casto built a small brick home on what is now known as Casto Lane, according to a history of the property on the city's website. The city secured outside funding to move the home from that spot in 2001 to its current location across from Olym-pus Junior High at approximately 2100 East and Murray-Holladay Road. If moved again, the home would rest on property behind City Hall or on the nearby sports fields.
