SPRINGFIELD — A church in southwest Missouri is trying to sell an historic mansion that has been used as a bed and breakfast.

For the price of $3.5 million, a buyer would get the stone mansion in southwest Springfield, an attached chapel, a classroom building, a small hermitage, a youth education center and a large church building.

The Cornerstone Church says it wants to sell the property so it can move to a new site in Springfield.

Cornerstone Pastor Jess Gibson says negotiations for a new church location are ongoing.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that the mansion was built during 1890-1892. It has 35 rooms, a turret and seven bathrooms in 27,000 square feet.
