TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas officials are trying to sell a historic home west of the Statehouse and have received bids from two prospective buyers.

The Department of Administration said Tuesday a Topeka development firm has bid $205,000 and a law firm has offered $351,000 for the Hiram Price Dillon house.

The state has owned the 12,000-square-foot house since 1998, when a nearby church traded the property for a parking lot.

Dillon was a prominent attorney who worked for the Union Pacific Railroad. He built the home in 1913 in an Italian Renaissance revival style common at the time.

The state has used the home for events, but a plan in 2010 to raise $4.6 million in private funds for renovations didn't come to fruition.
