IRVING -- A Dallas suburb has agreed to pay $175,000 for the house where Lee Harvey Oswald stored the rifle used to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.[More from San Antonio Express]
The Dallas Morning News reported Monday that the sum the Irving City Council agreed to pay is far more than the $84,000 value the Dallas Central Appraisal District lists for the property.
But Mayor Herbert Gears told the newspaper it's worth it because the house is a piece of history. The city has not yet decided what to do with the house.
