Pittsburgh Diocese Selling Bishop's Mansion

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh's Roman Catholic bishop says it
wasn't practical for him to live in a 39-room mansion, so now the
house is on the market with a $2.5 million price tag.

Five bishops have lived in the home, though Bishop David Zubik spent only two weeks there after he was appointed bishop in 2007. He moved into a two-room apartment at St. Paul's Seminary in suburban Crafton where he plans to stay.

Church officials decided it wasn't practical to keep the home built in 1910. David McCahill, an attorney and civic leader bought the mansion in 1928 and donated it to the church in 1949.
