House Selling for a Dollar

One dollar will get you a charming, two-story historic brick farm house in Southern Illinois, but here is the catch: before you can move in you have to actually move the house.

The developer wants to build new home in the area of the farm house but before she can, the farm house must be moved, so she is giving the house away at a great deal, to anyone who can move the house.

However, don't go breaking your piggy bank just yet. Preservation experts say moving the 1860s farmhouse will cost you more dollars; millions of dollars.

Neighbors are hoping someone will save this piece of history, but others say the odds of survival are slim and the piece of history will be demolished.
