If Citicorp Credit Services accepts a proposal by the Washington County Commissioners, the Kammerer house soon will be owned by the county and leased to a historical group for $1, County Administrator Rodney Shoop said Tuesday. If the plan succeeds, the house built by Johan Ludwig Kammerer in 1774 would not be moved or demolished. The County Commissioners agreed to the idea during a closed session Tuesday, Shoop said. Under the proposal, the county would make certain guarantees to Citicorp and would take on liability on behalf of the Mason-Dixon Middleburg/Mason-Dixon Line Area Historical Society.
