Old North Carolina Farmhouse for Free! (You've Got To Move It.)

"Price: $0 (must be moved) Location: Grimesland, North Carolina, USA.
The History:…Around 1910, William (Faucette) built this grand farmhouse on the site of the original house, and he lived there with his wife and daughter, both named Louise. The house stayed in the family until 2011, when the owner of an adjacent property bought the estate for the land. He is now offering the house to anyone willing to move it. Shown: The 4,363-square-foot house has six bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. It retains original exterior details, such as Doric columns and the center gable's fish-scale shingles."

Got $1,000? Buy a stunning house in Detroit

Detroit is auctioning off abandoned homes starting at just $1,000 each.

They include a 2,354 square foot home from 1881, a seven-bedroom Tudor-style home and a 1914 Georgian Revival home with "irreplaceable architectural details."

Yes, it is very heartbreaking to the Faucette Family. They are hoping someone will be able to afford to move it. My Mother lived in this house as a child. She has fond memories of it.
