Christine McConnell, a model, designer and actress who stars in the Netflix series "The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell," has submitted an offer to buy the Seymour mansion.
Located at 113 North St. in Auburn, the mansion was built in 1861 for James Seymour, a banker and philanthropist who founded Seymour Library and Auburn Community Hospital. The city of Auburn owns the mansion after acquiring it through tax foreclosure.
The deadline to submit offers to buy the home is Wednesday, Dec. 18. Afterward, Auburn City Council will review the offers made by McConnell and others and select a buyer to restore the historic mansion.
