The Keeseville businessman then made a counteroffer, upping his bid to $65,000, but that was also rejected.
The county made a settlement offer two weeks ago to sell it to him but retain two-thirds of the largest of four parcels and get easements and rights-of-way for multi-use trails through it.
Yet another counteroffer by George Moore would grant the access but take title to the entire parcel; that is still under negotiation.
A hearing in State Supreme Court of Essex County on the litigation is scheduled for Aug. 8.
The county took possession of Frontier Town after former owner North Hudson Associates LLC and its predecessor, Panther Mountain Water Park Inc., failed since 2007 to pay taxes on it.
Brazee has a lawsuit of her own against the county, seeking to have another former Frontier Town property, at 4050 Blue Ridge Road, awarded to her under the right of adverse possession.
She said she has lived in a cabin there since 2003 under an agreement with the former owners to give her the property.
No date has been set for a hearing on that suit.
