AZCentral: A South Florida man willed his historic house worth $1 million to the U.S. government to help eliminate the country’s growing debt.
The Miami Herald reports that Uncle Sam put the Coral Gables house up for auction Saturday. The winning bid was $1.175 million.
The house belonged to James H. Davidson Jr. who lived there from his teenage years until he died last December at 87. He also left $1 million to the government.
