ND to get update on Lawrence Welk's boyhood home

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) -- The North Dakota State Historical Society is slated to get an update on its purchase of Lawrence Welk's boyhood home. 

The body is meeting Friday in Bismarck.

The group voted 6-5 in January to buy the Strasburg homestead from Welk's nieces.

But a final sale price was not negotiated. The purchase agreement also was contingent on negotiated repairs being made to the property, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Last year, the Legislature allocated $100,000 for the society's purchase of the 6-acre homestead, but lawmakers stipulated that repairs must be made first.
