Brown's home up for auction

Posted: Updated:
PLAINFIELD, N.H. -

They used their home as a fortress to fight off federal agents -- now you could buy it.

The Valley News reports that Ed and Elaine Brown's house in Plainfield will be auctioned by the feds -- along with Elaine's old dental office in West Lebanon.

The couple led the news in 2007 when they refused to pay income taxes and held off federal agents in a nine month standoff. Officials say one of the reasons it took so long for the auction is to make sure all the property was safe and all the bombs and traps were removed. No date has been set yet.
