6 Shocking Stories of Strange Houses that Stand in Defiance

The Parking Garage House in Seattle, Washington

When a parking garage was going in next to her home, Edith Macefield refused to give in. Now it looks like a tiny house nestled in a concrete wasteland.

Born in 1921, Macefield was raised in Oregon. As a teenager she joined the war effort early and spent her years during World War II caring for orphaned children in England. By the time she hit her golden years she was living in Seattle. When gentrification came to her neighborhood a major development project sought to kick her out.

    If that ever happened i would let them do it but before they would have done it I would sell the house and when people pay for it OS the other person can have the problem 😉

    This is a great read. Corporations always think that they can get their way against ordinary people because they have financial resources to fight with. These stories, however, reminds us that anything worth having is worth fighting for.
