The Sherborn Peace Abbey is for sale -- but only to the right kind of buyer.

Officials at the Abbey, a small nonprofit group founded in 1988 that is dedicated to peace activism, are looking for a buyer they describe as ``progressive" who would guarantee they could continue to operate. The asking price for the facility near the center of town, which includes a historic building and a statuary garden , is around $5.5 million. The money from the sale would be used to set up an endowment, the officials say.
