GORHAM — The town council voted to accept an offer for a fraternity house it seized on Preble Street.

The council voted 6-0 late Tuesday night to approve the offer from Peter Wentworth, of 17 Elm St., who bid $81,100 for the property at 27 Preble St.

The Phi Kappa Sigma house was seized by town officials in June for tax delinquency and 140 code violations, ranging from a chair blocking a doorway to sewage in the basement.

Wentworth, who lives across the street from the property, wants to move his embroidery business into the building, said David Cole, the town manager.
