These Three Houses are Being Offered for Free to Anyone Who Can Move Them

by Rachael Meyerink

While perusing the magical treasure chest that is Craiglist, I came across three homes being offered for free to anyone who can move them!
 

 
 

1
 Pulaski, IA
 
Full listing available at Craigslist
 
In the town of Pulaski, Iowa (population 260) sits a Queen Anne Victorian in need of a new home. The woodwork inside is unpainted, with grand staircase and original fretwork in tact. The home is free to the one who will whisk this damsel in distress off to a new beginning.

 Atwater, MN

What an adorable little bungalow, looking for a new place to call home. Located in West Central Minnesota, it is FREE to the person who will move it off the property. What I love most about the house is all of the charming windows it has- the sidelights by the front door and the little set of square windows on the bumpout are my favorites. It appears the interior is in need of major restoration. This charmer could really shine with the right care.

Free Four Square in Eastern Iowa! Its original charm has faded with the years, but its bones are worth salvaging and could be the start of something very special.

Rachael_MeyerinkAUTHOR RACHAEL MEYERINK

Rachael Meyerink resides in Sioux Falls, SD and is a Midwestern girl, born and raised. To her, “home” feels like sun shining through windows paned in wavy glass, an extra sweater on cold winter days and a window fan humming in the background in the heat of summer. In short: home feels like an old house. She and her husband have owned three such houses in their 15 years together- a 1923 American Four Square, a 1960s ranch and finally, an 1889 Queen Anne listed on the National Register of Historic Places. By day she works as a pediatric dietitian, and on nights and weekends, rehabs her old house with her husband. Her three children, yellow lab, ginger cat and five chickens complete their family. She keeps an online journal of her old house rehab adventures at myqueenanne.wordpress.com.
