A northern Arizona county is weighing what to do with a 240-acre property with a six-bedroom house and 16-stall stables that was a gift from St. Louis Rams owner Georgia Frontiere.
The Arizona Daily Sun reports that Coconino County received the estate next to Rogers Lake southwest of Flagstafff in 2011, three years after Frontiere died in 2008.
County officials say options for the property include selling it. Possible uses if the county keeps the property include renting it out for corporate retreats and turning it into an educational center or a group campground.
But members of the county Board of Supervisors say they don't want maintenance and improvement costs to turn the property into a money pit for the county.
