Free Houses! These 6 Gorgeous Old Houses Are Free For The Taking — Provided You Can Move Them

By Elizabeth Finkelstein.

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I know exactly what you’re thinking: What on earth do I get the old house lover in my life??? I’ve hand-picked six gorgeous old houses that I can promise your significant is just going to LOVE. And here’s the really cool thing: all of these are being offered for free provided that you pick them up and move them to another site. Free houses AND rescuing a piece of history? That sounds like a match made in heaven. (Psst! Make sure to follow CIRCA’s YouTube Channel to see more old house eye candy each week!)
