The first 10 minutes of Pixar Animation‘s movie Up are enough to make anyone cry, no matter what age or how tough you are. And now we have another potentially sad story with links to the Pixar movie
You might remember back in 2006 there was the real-life story of an old woman named Edith Macefield who refused a $1 million offer for her 1,000-square-foot house. An investment company was developing a 131,000-square-foot retail center in the area and wanted to tear down her house to use the entire area for their building. But since she refused to sell, they built the entire building around her house (as seen above). But now that house may end up being demolished anyway. Find out if we’ll see the Up house demolished after the jump. Read More »
