SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) -- The Salisbury house that once belonged to an actor who starred in Rosemary's Baby has new owners.

The Salisbury Post reported (http://bit.ly/M4dSWA) that Glenn and Beth Dixon now own the house that once belonged to Sidney and Suzanne Blackmer. The house was severely damaged in a fire in 1984, and the Blackmers' oldest son had once sought permission to tear down the house.

Instead, the Historic Salisbury Foundation bought the house in 2012 for almost $110,000, and the Dixons paid $150,000, closing on the 1820 house Friday.

Sidney Blackmer played the warlock in Rosemary's Baby and won a Tony for his role in Come Back, Little Sheba in 1950.

Suzanne Blackmer is remembered for holding Donald Trump at bay when he wanted her to abandon her Manhattan apartment.
