The little house that could....

Posted by Terry McNichols

I posted here about Edith Macefield's choice to remain in her home until her death while Trader Joe's and L.A. Fitness grew up around her at the new Ballard Blocks. Here and here and here are some follow-up links to complete the story. Here is a quote from one of the stories:
The cottage once owned by Edith Macefield, an elderly woman who turned down an offer of $1 million to sell her home to developers, has been sold to a company run by a motivational speaker who says he intends to raise the home into the air — both literally and philosophically.
The home was also used to promote the movie UP. It will be interesting to see what becomes of this now-beloved old house!
