Woman, 84, Forced Mall To Build Around Her House

Edith Macefield, an 84-year-old woman, forced contractors to build their mall around her house as she turned down a million-dollar offer.

Edith bought the 108-year-old home for $3,750 and ever since, she lived in the house with her mother. When the builders first approached Edith, they offered her $750,000 and then increased the ammount to $1 million – Edith refused both offers.

 

The house was reportedly the inspiration for the Disney film ‘Up’ and it is still standing tall with the five-story mall surrounding it.

 

Would you give up your house for $1,000,000?
