Historic Real Estate: The $1, Everything-Must-Go Edition

  • By: Emily Potter

If you’ve got a little ingenuity and some imagination, one of these modest homes could be for you. The only catch is that you’ll have to move it out of Ettrick, Virginia by June 30. These properties have been designated as “contributing” to the Historic District of Ettrick and most were originally built as mill worker houses, but all are in danger of demolition if they’re not moved. See a more complete listing of the $1 homes for sale here.
