The Edith Macefield House
1438 NW 46th Street, Seattle, Washington.
Built c. 1900.
The story of the Edith Macefield house became widely known after the 2009 Pixar movie “Up,” based on Edith’s story, was released. Macefield was offered a reported one millions dollars in 2006 to sell her house in order to make way for a commercial development. She turned it down making herself and her house folk heroes. The five-story development was still built, but instead of taking over the space of her property, it surrounds it.
Macefield died in her house in 2008, and the fate of her house is currently unknown. Fundraising efforts have been put into place to relocate the house.
