    7. Edith Macefield
    In Seattle, Washington, a new mall complex threatened to take over the home of an 84-year-old woman named
    Edith Macefield. She was offered $1 million dollars for her home, which she had bought in 1952. However, she
    refused. In a letter, Edith claimed her mother dragged her “all the way from England” to look at the small
    house near Ballard Bridge. Her mother apparently had never had a home of her own, so Edith bought it for her.
    Perhaps this is the explanation as to why she held onto it so tenaciously.
    Construction moved forward and the mall was simply built around her little property. The foreman of the
    construction project, Barry Martin, befriended Edith. He helped her with her groceries, medications, and took
    care of her until she passed away in 2008. She was 86. It’s believed that her story inspired the Pixar film,
    The home, which Edith called Whitewood Cottage, is now referred to as the Macefield House, the Ballard House,
    or the Up House, and was left to Barry Martin on Edith’s passing. He searched the home, looking for clues of
    Edith’s past, but only came up with more questions.
    In life, she claimed all sorts of strange stories, like riding in a hot air balloon and being a spy.
    Supposedly, she was married three times and there were three marriage certificates from three different
    countries but none had official seals.
    One especially puzzling artifact is a green notebook containing autographs, notes, and poems from actors,
    musicians, and directors, ranging from Charlie Chaplin to Katherine Hepburn. Taylor Bowie, a Seattle
    antiquarian and avid fan of old actors and musicians, examined the autograph book and said at least two-
    thirds of the signatures are authentic.
    In 2009, Martin sold the house to a businessman for $300,000 and used the money to pay for his children’s
    college education.
    However, according to its Facebook page, the mildew-ridden Macefield House still stands. Edith’s legacy,
    however, doesn’t end here. Every year in Seattle since 2013, there has been a festival called the Macefield
    Music Festival to celebrate the memory of one determined and mysterious woman.
    6. The Yang House
    At the three-storey building in Yichang, Hubei province, China has fallen victim to its own rapid urban
    development. Owned by a man named Yang, it stands in the middle of a construction site of a high-tech park at
    the bottom of a pit. He and his family have refused to move during a two-year battle with the local

    So you're telling me this lady had no family members to left the house to but instead left it to the man who wanted to tear it down??? Why didn't she had some paper work drawn up where she accepts the 1 million but still get to live at the residence until her death then the property goes to him.
    If she really had no kin she could have donated that money to a GOOD CAUSE.
    And I believe the contractor sells the house not to arouse any suspicions which he knows would eventually be torn down or becomes part of the mall

    I'm not too sure I believe the stories in China. China being a communist country, would not allow these owners to be so defiant. I don't think this happened. Also, there laws that prohibit anyone from preventing progression. I don't know what the laws are exactly but I know they exist. Something like this happened to a home near mine. The owners tried to hold out for years. This prevented the progression of the community and a law was filed against the home owner. A judge agreed with the developer and the owner was forced to sell. Of course at a much higher offering than the others but not so outrageous that it was unattainable.

    I feel for these people. It's not easy for any and everyone to just pick up and move, especially if the place you're leaving is the house you grew up in or your family home. But.... in the case of Austin Spriggs he held out only because he wanted more money. Which ended up with him losing his own money, his credit, and the property that he thought he could milk every last cent out of. I wonder how many times he looked back and wondered what his life would have been like had he just taken the cool 2.7 million dollar offer; meanwhile staring at the cracked foundation, rundown interior and exterior, and the past due bills piling up in-between court dates with the bank. His situation was so similar to Edith Macefield, who's story is odd, yet very inspiring because of her motivation and life. And yet while she has a music festival performed in her memory, Austin Spriggs is only remembered when brought up in lists like these for making a stupid and greedy choice.

      Greed. Plain and simple. I mean, come on, 2.7 million for that shit hole? Yeah, there's always the possibility of making more, but to what end? Take the 2.7 million AND ENJOY LIFE. That guy was an idiot.
